Places to Visit in Northamptonshire, England.



Northamptonshire is situated just south of the East Midlands with a plethora of other counties as its neighbours; Leicestershire, Rutland and Lincolnshire to the north, Warwickshire to the west, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire to the south and Cambridgehshire to the east.

It has a cross section of urban and rural areas; open fields, pasturelands and surviving patches of Rockingham Forest, where English Kings once hunted deer, constitute the northern section. The county is the home of many magnificent historic attractions; Althorp (the childhood home of Lady Diana Spencer), Boughton House, Deene Park, Lamport Hall, Cottesbrooke Hall, Holdenby House, Rockingham Castle, Kelmarsh Hall to mention a few. Churches and country houses also decorate this area once known as the county of spires and squires. Northampton, a centre of the shoe industry, makes up the southern section.
