Things to do in Northamptonshire
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
The county town of Northampton is home to almost half of Northamptonshire, with fantastic Georgian architecture, extensive shopping complexes, theatres and cinemas and much more to occupy you in your retirement.
Northamptonshire’s award winning Country Parks each have their own unique character and something to offer for everyone. With friendly and helpful staff, picnic meadows, surfaced trails, sign posts and plenty of seating, the parks are designed with access for everyone in mind.
Northamptonshire is also home to a variety of beautiful country estates and ancient medieval castles that are well worth a day out for all the history buffs out there. Rockingham Castle makes for a great day out; being one of the few homes to have been continuously occupied since the time of William the Conqueror!
Silverstone is at the midway point between Northampton and Oxford, and has been the circuit for the British Grand Prix since 1948. The local village of Silverstone also has two golf courses set amongst a scenic country village, that makes making for a great day out for F1 fans and non-fans alike.
