Inspiration Wednesday – Northampton

Northampton_marketThis week’s #InspirationWednesday is Northampton in the East Midlands. The county town has a history dating back to the Bronze Ages and Northampton Castle regularly hosted royals back in the day.

Northampton is a brilliant area to explore, with many medieval buildings to gaze at, a buzzing university town atmosphere and with its expansion of industry in recent years. The town’s market square, which sits in the main shopping area, dates back to 1235, making it one of Britain’s largest and most historic.

As well as that, the town is great for entertainment – the theatre, nightlife, bars and eateries on offer are enough to keep you busy! If you want to explore further out than the county town, Northamptonshire offers some beautiful stately homes, gardens and cosy pubs, making living in this area as bustling or calm as you wish.
