Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Northamptonshire

Called the Rose of the Shires, Northamptonshire is a region in the midlands of England. It doesn’t have cities and isn’t overly industrialized. Instead, the main feature of the region is rolling countryside for miles around. The lifestyle of the people in the area is very rural too, with the architecture of the area consisting primarily of thatched roofs, old English country lanes, and many old churches.

However, the county does have its modern amenities as well. It is known for hosting the Formula One Grand Prix in Silverstone. Other modern facilities are available too. In terms of accommodation the region does not lack at all. There are hostels for groups and individuals available around the area, along with farms, rustic cottages, campsites and even caravan parks. Wherever you choose to stay, local villages aren’t far off for supply runs either.

The region features many museums, each of which has different attractions. The Carpetbaggers Aviation Museum is one such, along with the Rushden Transport Museum and the famous Northampton Museum and Art Gallery. The Sywell Aviation Museum is another unique find, with relics on display from eras like the Second World War and even further back in history.

If it is amusement you are looking for, the Alton Towers theme park is the biggest in the UK, and can be found in Staffordshire, not far away. You can also visit the Zoological Gardens, or play laser tag at the Laser Maze in Wellingborough. If shopping is what you crave instead, there are plenty of markets, shopping centers and retail parks scattered across the region at the main towns.

The local villagers also tend to have car boot sales every now and then, where you might find some fascinating souvenirs of village life. For food and drink, the hungry traveler can visit one of the many cafés, public houses, restaurants, and eateries in the villages and around the county. If you happen to be staying in a cottage or farmhouse, you get the chance to enjoy some authentic English country fare provided by the friendly landlords.
