Our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Northampton make it easy to explore this ancient city. Take in an evening of riveting theater or lose yourself in the surrounding pastoral countryside.
Explore two sides of the same city when you stay in our Northampton hotels. Visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the last remaining round churches in the country. It was built in 1100 by a returning crusader. An altogether more modern architectural gem lies on the other side of the town center at 78 Derngate. This townhouse was remodeled by the great Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and flaunts one of the finest Art Nouveau interiors in England.
Relax in Becket Park by the River Nene after walking the city's historic streets or join in the buzzing restaurant scene in Northampton's town center. Derngate street is home to many of Northampton's liveliest pubs and restaurants, and the Derngate theater complex entertains a steady supply of theatergoers. For a cozy pint and hearty pub grub, choose from the many pubs and bars scattered around the imposing Gothic facade of Northampton Guildhall, in the city center and close to our Northampton hotels. Northampton's numerous Indian and Thai restaurants stretch to the northeast along Wellingborough Road. If you're craving a glass of fizzy English cider, Northamptonshire has a number of English cider and ale producers as well as a surprising number of vineyards.
Book a stay in our Northampton hotels and head out into the green Northamptonshire countryside to see some of the area's stately homes. Just a short drive from our hotels in Northampton is Althorp, the ancestral home of the family of Diana, Princess of Wales, since the 16th century.
