5 Things to Do in Northamptonshire for Father’s Day

Father’s Day activities in Northamptonshire

Here at our hotel in Northamptonshire, we believe Dads need to be rewarded for being the superheroes that they are.

With that in mind, we have created this list of lovely things to do in Northamptonshire this Father’s Day to help you show the old chap you really care…

Here are our 5 favourite things to do in Northamptonshire this Father’s Day…

1. Northampton and Lamport Railway – Father’s Day Special

Try something different this Father’s Day and take Dad to the Northampton and Lamport railway for a ride on one of the special Father’s Day trains.

Travel through the Northamptonshire countryside as a steam engine takes you around the 4-mile route, all whilst enjoying a lovely cream tea.

2. Rockingham Speedway & Rushton Hall Drive Package

We’ve got the perfect gift for adrenalin junky Dads!

Treat Dad to the Drive Package at Rushton Hall in conjunction with Rockingham Speedway.

This incredible offer includes a hair-raising day racing around the Rockingham Speedway Racetrack (experiencing 7 driving experiences in one day), dinner in our 3 rosette restaurant and a luxury night’s stay in one of our bedrooms.

3. Father’s Day Jazz Picnic at Canon’s Ashby

Spend a perfect Father’s Day picnicking in the beautiful terraced gardens of Canons Ashby whilst listening to the smooth sounds of a live jazz band.

This lovely is event is free, however normal admission charges apply for the venue.

4. Sywell Aviation Museum

For a free and educational day out this Father’s Day, head to the Sywell Aviation Museum.

Sywell is one of the best General Aviation Airfields in the United Kingdom.

With superb airfield facilities, a wonderful art deco styled hotel and filled to the brim with artefacts and interesting information, who knows, you may even want to learn to fly yourself after the visit!

5. Climbing at The Pinnacle

If you have a sporty and proactive Dad, take him to The Pinnacle this Father’s Day for a day out where you can both get your hands dirty (or should we say chalky).

There are loads of ways to get involved as The Pinnacle welcomes absolute beginners just looking for a taste of climbing through to expert climbers.

Not only is it great fun, but it’s also a great way to develop physically.

Instruction and kit are included so all you need to bring along is comfortable clothes to climb in and a head for heights!
