We are frequent visitors to Market Harborough and have often walked past this beautiful old ex grammar school which is reported to be over 400 years. I have not seen anything quite like this one although the building in Thaxted in Essex is a tiny...More

School, masters house, and still the focal point of the town centre. Standing next to St. Dionysius Church, much older than even the Old Grammar School, which dates from the early 1600’s, the Old Grammar School has been superbly maintained by a significant local charity,...More

Such a beautiful town with lovely architecture, old style shops and cafés and of course the prettiest old grammar school I’ve ever seen! It was a pleasant walk and good opportunity for taking pictures!

This is the place that you have to pass when driving through Harborough. The building that says to me you are in Harborough. Has now been renovated to its original colours and looks a treat.

This building should not be missed on a visit to Market Harborough. It has been sympathetically restored and looks fantastic.
