This building is amazing. We walked in off the street hoping for a glimpse and ended up exploring upstairs and down. The inside is opulent and gorgeous reflecting a time when Northampton was cashed up. Really worth a visit. Really nice to see a place...More

On Mondays, the galleries and museums are closed in Northampton. The 19th century Guildhall was the only place open. Worth a look inside, some nice interiors on the ground floor, but it won’t take you long to see this.

This is the most loveliest building housing some gems of archetectuaral importance. I got married here recently, it is the best place around the civic buildings for stained glass, and the great hall is superb. Well worth a visit.
