Why Move to Northampton
The large East Midlands county town of Northampton has a lot of history and a rich cultural heritage. Located in the county of Northamptonshire, it sits on the river Nene.
In recent years the town has become a popular place to relocate to for several reasons; it has excellent transport links which makes it perfect for commuting to and from other towns and cities in the region. Expanding quickly, you will find plenty of new developments dotted around the town and you also have the opportunity to experience a rural lifestyle with great housing prices.
Northampton is continuing to expand and rejuvenate old areas of the town. Around £20 million has been spent upgrading its railway station as well as investment in the busy North Gate bus station.
Meaning getting around the UK from Northampton has never been easier. Situated less than an hour away from London by train and just over an hour to Birmingham, making it ideal for commuters.
Historically Northampton was industrial town, largely thanks to the Grand Union Canal and the railways running to the town.
Today its economy relies primarily on the tech industry, engineering, and the manufacturing and design sectors. If you have the experience in any of these areas, finding employment here should be relatively easy.
With a host of other new projects coming its way, including a theatre, new bars and restaurants and more shops, Northampton residents have much to look forward to.
Northampton Schools & Education
Moving with children means that you must take into consideration what standard of education provisions are available in Northampton. The good news is that there is a very good choice of 50 primary schools and 8 secondary schools serving the town.
Of the 8 closest primary schools, 6 have been graded as “good” and Weston Favell CofE Primary School was awarded an “outstanding” by the education watchdog Ofsted.
Two of its most successful secondary schools include Northampton School for Boys and The CE Academy, both received highly rated results following their last Ofsted inspections.
For those who prefer private education, there are a number of independent schools to choose from in the region some of the closest are; St Andrew’s College, Bosworth Independent College and St Peter’s Independent School.
Higher education is catered for by the University of Northampton. This is the only higher education establishment in the town and offers courses from foundation and undergraduate levels to postgraduate, professional and doctoral qualifications.
Things to do in Northampton
Moving to Northamptonshire presents plenty of exiting leisure opportunities.
Just outside Northampton is Billing Aquadrome, which has seven lakes within a 235-acre park and the River Nene flowing through it. It hosts the Northampton Balloon Festival as well as numerous motorsports shows.
The Silverstone Circuit, home of the British Grand Prix, is within easy reach of Northampton. You can book a fast car driving experience or attend one of the race days!
The town itself also has lots to offer. The St. Giles Quarter is situated in the heart of Northampton town centre and has various places to shop and dine.
Leading off the market are the town’s two indoor shopping malls, the Grosvenor Centre and Market Walk, which links the market to Abington Street, Northampton’s main shopping street. Here you will find a diverse array of retailers to satisfy even the most ardent shopaholic.
Having undergone much renovation, The Waterside area is great for walking and cycling along. The Canal is part of the British canal system and runs from Birmingham, through Northampton and all the way to London (137 miles).
There are plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy lunch along this route, whether you do a couple of miles or the whole journey, it’s a lovely activity for all ages.
