The bustling town of Northampton has a wealth of attractions on its doorstep. Whether it's hitting the race track at Silverstone, thrill-seeking at nearby theme parks or even llama trekking in the countryside, there's plenty going on to keep you busy.

Showcasing beautiful scenery, traditional market towns and plenty of attractions, the county surrounding Northampton is brimming with places to visit, so it's well worth considering hiring a car for your stay.

Pick up your hire car from downtown locations and ensure you pre-book to get the best prices.

History buffs will enjoy visiting Northampton's selection of museums, including the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, the Carpetbagger Aviation Museum and Granddad's Attics Museum. Additionally, the fascinating Church of the Holy Sepulchre is one of the few remaining round churches in the country, while St Peter's Church dates back to 1150 and showcases ancient carvings. 

If you want to spend time in the great outdoors, then Abington Park is one of Northampton's oldest parks. Here you can enjoy country walks, a lake, a garden for the blind and Abington Park Museum. During the summer, events can be enjoyed at the bandstand.

Those looking for a day of retail therapy won't be disappointed by the town's selection of high street stores and there are also plenty of places to eat and drink when you fancy a break.
