Location information for Northampton

Car hire in Northampton

Dating back to the sixth century, Northampton is the largest and most modern city in Northamptonshire. Found midway between the larger hubs of Birmingham and London, this former market town is famous for its rugby team. The city is enclosed by a ring road giving access to many routes, and the M1 motorway is just to the west, making self-driving tours a breeze. There are a number of recognised car rental agents in town, but visitors should compare cheap car hire in Northampton here to snag the best deals.

Why to visit

Northampton is fast becoming a tourist hot spot due to its great location, as it is easy to visit many other cities and towns from here. The city itself also has a lot to offer, including beautiful neo-gothic buildings and a great museum. It is also home to the world-famous Northampton Saints rugby club. Car hire is ideal for those using Northampton as a base, as the city is well connected to major routes and motorways.


Birmingham International Airport and London Luton Airport, both around an hour’s drive away, serve the city. Northampton can be toured by public bus or on foot, but organising car rental in Northampton is the best option for those looking to leave the city and visit other attractions. A vehicle will allow you to visit the lovely riverside town of Stoke Bruerne or the city’s many surrounding golf courses. It will also enable you to get to the bustling cities of Birmingham and London.

What to see and do

With Northampton car hire, travellers can easily make the four-mile drive to Althorp House, the resting place of Princess Diana. The town of Rushden is around 12 miles east of the city and makes for a lovely daytrip. Here, visitors will find loads of museums, parks and English heritage sites. The birthplace of Shakespeare and theatre town of Stratford-upon-Avon is just west of Northampton, while the popular attraction of Foxton Locks is less than a 30-minute drive north of the city.
