Best Things To Do & Days Out In Northampton

Right in the heart of England, with its fair share of royal visits over the years, there are plenty of cool things to do in Northampton!

At The Northampton Museum and Art Gallery you can, quite literally, walk in the footsteps of those from the past as you relive the town’s significance in the Footwear Industry. You’ll never look at your families shoe rack with the same level of despair again when you see the 12,000 shoes in the museum! Plus there are fine arts, archeological artifacts and much more.

To complete the outfit head to Abington Museum, which has historic fashion items and interesting costumes. Entrance is completely free, plus there’s a mysterious ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ to help get children intrigued!

Enjoy acres of open space on Northampton family days out! Pack a picnic and head out to Brampton Valley Way with its 14 miles of parkland dotted with stunning scenery making it the ideal spot for a leisurely family walk or bike ride, or Abington Park has a duck pond, sensory garden, a huge playground, café and an over 7s fitness trail!

If the weather isn’t good enough for outdoor fun, then Northampton Trampoline Centre will help the children burn off some energy and they could learn some new tricks! There are expert instructors on hand to give you hints and tips, as well as help smaller ones find the spring in their step!
