Getting Around Northampton
If you’re arriving in Northampton by train and looking to get straight to your accommodation, there is a taxi company based right outside the station, so you can get to where you need to be without waiting around. However, we recommend pre-booking your trips before you arrive to save you the headache when it comes to getting to-and-from your activities. Everything in Northampton is relatively spaced out, so travelling by bus or taxi is probably the best way to go when you’re visiting if you don’t fancy the walk!
