Northamptonshire

Visit Northamptonshire to see Elizabethan mansions perched in romantic deer parks, sleepy canals, and earls’ residences hidden in English farmland. Northamptonshire knows how to do countryside. Barbour and Dubarrys are essential uniform as horses pound across cross-country courses and Grand Prix cars speed around village circuits. If you’re after something a bit more relaxed then long-distance walkways take you past royal hunting lodges and over viaducts. Along the way you can call in at understated towns with hidden farmers’ markets and classical cathedrals. Or experience Northamptonshire by tranquil canal trip in this water-filled county, with boating lakes and country park reservoirs.
