Visiting Northampton

An 800 year old town nestling beside the River Nene, Northampton has plenty of character. The Market Square dates back to 1235 and hosts an antiques market every Thursday, and the town’s high street stores can all be found nearby.

Northampton was once the heart of the shoe industry and still today there are plenty of quality shoe shops and factory shoe outlets. Visitors can also enjoy the Museum and Art Gallery’s collection of fine footwear.

Tips: One visitor attraction is 78 Derngate which was remodelled by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and the gallery upstairs is free to enter.
