Spend the day at Coton Manor Gardens

Situated 10 miles out of Northampton, Coton Manor Gardens offers the perfect day out. Voted the nation’s favourite gardens, you’ll get the chance to discover the wild meadow and woods, beautiful flowers… and the resident flamingos! If you’re hungry, make a pitstop at the Stableyard Café, for a delicious range of sandwiches and cakes.

Abseil down the Lift Tower

Adrenaline junkies, this is for you. Standing tall at 127 metres, it was bult as a lift testing tower, but now you can abseil down it too (it might surprise you that it’s the tallest permanent abseil tower in the world)! It costs £100 per person, and you can choose to abseil either outside or inside.

Sample wine at New Lodge Vineyard

Northampton may not be the first place that springs to mind when you think of picturesque vineyards, but think again! New Lodge opens up to the public on Saturdays, so you can purchase your wine, or ask any vino related questions you have. Prior to the lockdown, you used to be able to enjoy a bottle on the terrace – so hopefully this is something that will return once restrictions are eased!

Catch a film at Northampton Filmhouse

Enjoy two screens of luxuriousness at the bijou Northampton Filmhouse, located in the heart of the town centre. In addition to mainstream and arthouse films, they also livestream ballets, operas and other theatre events from around the world. After your film, head to the terrace, where you can enjoy a drink and a snack.

Try a spot of sailing

You may not be able to head to the sea in Northampton, but Pitsford Water Park is a close second. Try your hand at sailing and a range of other watersports; or if you’d prefer to stay on dry land, there’s plenty to explore by walking or cycling. There are three different car parks at Pitsford Water Park, and you can book a spot for camping too.
