An excellent location grabbing a bit of Northampton's history. There is a historic building undergoing renovation, which includes tours and events. I walked the dog in the lovely grounds. Located on London Road it is hidden from the road, but signs indicate its presence. They advertise large events. There is a tea room for snacks and lunches.

This is a lovely parkland area. It's being developed locally as a great attraction. We went to see Jessij in concert there last weekend. Fantastic venue for an evening out for families! The abbey which is a beautiful building, is currently being renovated. I have walked my dog in this parkland many times. I've seen pony club events being held... More

Alfie was the closing artist & what a show he put on! Great personality & the voice - amazing. Thank you Alfie for blowing us away. The other mention... More

This was my first time to Northhampton and we went there for the Alive concerts. Be warned parking for these concerts is over a mile away,but free on Saturdays and Sundays. Lovely venue,on a slope so perfect for this concert. Be warned no cans,bottles or plastic bottles over 2 litres and they DO search your bags. With great weather it... More

This abbey has opened its ground to concerts and they are amazing grounds too, and perfect for the concert..... The staging was set up at the bottom of a steady slope which made viewing the stage even better no matter how far back you are! Beautiful setting, excellently laid out and well organised!!

This is an interesting and beautiful place to walk round, the gardens are quite wild but offer a great walk , the kitchen garden is also beautiful. Unfortunately the tea shop is no longer open and this is a great shame as tea in the walled garden was very good value and very pleasant particularly on a sunny day. Would... More

it is a shame you can only see the outside. I did see the inside inside 50 + years ago and also then the various ponds, streams and fountains were fully operational. Now it's a bit sad but at least they try-and keep the gardens stocked.

The Abbey building site looks like a building site. The parking is very limited. The uneven ground is not disabled accessible. There is a tea tent somewhere and there are public toilets I think somewhere. As a regular visitor I'm just not sure. The old monks garden hasn't been tended to in many decades. There lots of dogs off the... More
