Town and city breaks in Northamptonshire

Northampton, the third-largest town (without city status) in the UK after Reading and Dudley, is a charming and picturesque historic settlement. There has been human settlement in the rich and fertile area since the Bronze Age, but the town really began to excel from the medieval period onwards through trade and manufacture. The town's prize building is the glorious Victorian Guildhall, designed by E.W. Godwin. Other landmarks worth visiting from your Northamptonshire hotel include the Carlsberg UK brewery, Northampton Castle (the remains of), the All Saints' Church, Northampton Cathedral and Delapré Abbey. Northamptonshire is also home to many smaller market towns such as the Roman town of Towcaster, Brackley, Kettering and finally, Silverstone for any Grand Prix fans.

Holidays in the Northamptonshire countryside

This central county is home to some of the most staggeringly beautiful countryside in England. There are miles of walks, canals and cycle paths as well as huge areas of ancient woodland and country parks to explore and enjoy; all are easily accessible from your Best Western Northamptonshire hotel. Cast a line for tench and bream at one of leisure park Billing Aquadrome's nine fishing lakes. Have a wander around William the Conqueror's old hunting ground at Rockingham Forest. Also in this area is Rockingham Castle, a mile north of Corby, which perches majestically on its hilltop with views stretching all the way to Rutland Water. It was first used as a defensive site as far back as the Iron Age and was strengthened over the following millennia, always valued due to its views of the Welland Valley, a truly historical structure.

Attractions in Northamptonshire

When you're staying in the county known for its long-term specialisation in shoe making, perhaps pop into the Northampton Central Museum and check out the city's footwear collection for yourself - the largest in the world. Admittedly footwear isn't for everyone, so nearby are the popular Derngate and Royal Theatres on Guildhall Road and opposite is Northampton Art Gallery. No matter where your hotel in Northamptonshire is located, a visit to Santa Pod Raceway in Wellingborough is certainly advisable, but remember to bring your earmuffs! Book a Best Western hotel in Northamptonshire for a perfect UK short break.
