Northamptonshire truly is an area that has a lot to offer. Full of architectural treasures, it is the perfect place for those who enjoy cultural outings and relaxing walks in gorgeous gardens. But of course, for a faster pace, Northampton has everything a modern city can offer, including museums, theatres, cinemas, restaurants and many other entertainment venues. It is a very cultural region that all History lovers will enjoy.
If you are moving to Northampton as a family, you will be happy to know that the area has an extremely wide range of family-friendly attractions. Motor sports, water sports, theme parks and more. Indeed, there are no less than three motor racing tracks around Northampton: Silverstone, Rockingham and Santa Pod. If you are an animal lover, you will enjoy visiting one of the many zoos or going on a trek with Llamas in the countryside. And don’t miss out on the incredible theme park: Wicksteed Park; with over 40 rides and attractions, it’s the perfect place for a day out with the family.
Shopping is another very popular activity in Northamptonshire. Besides the usual shopping centres, you will find whole villages almost entirely dedicated to this particular activity! There are many farmers’ markets to choose from, but also some wonderful shopping opportunities in those quaint traditional rural farms converted into lovely shopping yards where one can buy, of course, milk, eggs and produce, but also gift cards, traditional delicatessen, clothes, antiques, needlecraft, wines and ales, and even furniture, fine china or flowers! Most of these farms also include a tea room or a small restaurant.
Sports enthusiasts will not feel let down either. In Northampton, you will find many independent dance studios, junior activities and fitness options, including the leisure centre Trilogy Health & Fitness. The centre features gyms, three swimming pools, fitness classes, virtual cycling, personal training, and even a cinema!
In town, there are many clubs, restaurants, bars and pubs to choose from, as well as many interesting coffee shops. So whether you are looking for a lovely meal with your other half or an evening out with friends, Northampton has the right place for you.
The whole county is well known for its great, well-maintained roads, and though it may be further away from London than some other commuter towns, the 48 minute journey is still quite acceptable for a great quality of life and average house prices 75% lower than those you can expect in London!
