Attraction Information

Get to know your local history with a visit to the recently restored Delapre Abbey near Northampton. This is a museum the kids will actually enjoy as well - they are allowed to touch pretty much anything inside!

The furniture at Delapre Abbey mostly consist of replicas, which means the usual restrictions don’t apply. Your tots are allowed to interact with the surroundings - sit on the chairs and climb on the sofas (as long as they don’t break anything of course), which makes this a much more relaxed and pleasant experience for them.  Meanwhile you have the chance to learn about the key historic moments from the region’s past, such as the all-important Battle of Northampton. Delapre Abbey helps you reconnect with your local heritage in a fun and informative way.

The abbey’s surroundings are a great place  for an afternoon stroll. Take a walk around the grounds and let the kids run free through the wide lawns under the cedar trees. If you still have some time on your hands, venture into the woods towards the lake. If you pay attention, you’ll spot all kinds of wildlife - from deer to colourful waterbirds.
