This is the county of spires and squires…

Welcome to Northamptonshire!

Northamptonshire is known as the county of spires and squires. You can see Elizabethan mansions in romantic deer parks, sleepy canals, and earls’ residences hidden in English farmland. Long-distance walks will take you past royal hunting lodges and over traditional viaducts.

Northamptonshire has had a long and loving relationship with food and drink that continues to this day so visit our guide to the county’s best dining. With excellent shopping facilities across the county, from lively urban centres to traditional high streets and smaller unique shops, it doesn’t get better than this. As the self-professed beer capital of England, many of Northamptonshire’s drinking holes serve up locally-produced beverages, so check out some of the best pubs, bars and clubs to visit.

Whatever it is you’re looking for in Northamptonshire, let our informative guides help shape your travel plans!
