Visitor Information

Welcome to South Northamptonshire

Located in the heart of rural England, South Northamptonshire is admired for its beautiful rolling countryside and ancient woodlands, historic canal network and tranquil villages that are reminiscent of the nearby Cotswolds.

In complete contrast, the area has a close and historic link with the adrenalin-fuelled world of motor racing. Located between Brackley and Towcester is Silverstone, the internationally-renowned home of British motor racing and the venue of the British Formula One Grand Prix.

The pretty market towns of Brackley and Towcester are full of charm and character and offer a great choice of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs whilst a number of rural shopping centres sell a range of locally grown produce, gifts, clothes and more, from converted farm and estate buildings.

With so much to offer, South Northamptonshire is just waiting to be discovered.

Whether you are planning to visit South Northamptonshire on holiday or business, you will find that a wide variety of accommodation awaits you.


The choice of hotels includes privately owned small hotels with award winning restaurants as well as branded chain hotels conveniently located close to the main driving routes. Then there are many welcoming bed and breakfasts, traditional country inns, and attractive self-catering venues set on working farms deep in the countryside. There are also camping and caravanning sites within the district, and a number of good quality temporary campsites are run in the Silverstone area for the Formula One Grand Prix and other major events at Silverstone Circuit.
