Top tips for renting a car in Northampton

  • Northampton is one of the largest towns in England whose prominence as a centre of royal authority reached its zenith during the Middle Ages. Exploring its boundaries is made much easier with a car hire in Northampton, which offers limitless flexibility within its limits and the greater East Midlands region. Althorp Estate (6 miles) and Castle Ashby (8 miles) are easy trips for summertime visitors who can leisurely stroll around the grounds and gardens to take in the country air. The 22-mile trip along the south on the A5 takes you to iconic Bletchley Park where you can tour its famous WWII installations.
  • London Luton Airport (LTN) is the closest major airport to the town (approx. 34 miles) so if you’re arriving by plane, stop by its Car Hire Centre and pick up a Northampton car hire to complete the journey to your destination and savour the road adventures to follow. A shuttle bus is required to transport you from the terminal building in order to pick up your vehicle. Just follow the directions to the terminal bus station across the street from the main building and locate the shuttle at Bay C.
  • The M1 is the region’s main artery, distributing traffic onto several major roads including the A45 and especially the A4500, which flows through the town centre. Congestion during the morning and evening rush is likely on these tributaries as well as any secondary roads that feed off them. The University of Northampton is situated in the town centre so expect a fair amount of pedestrian, bike and motorcycle engagement. Delays are also likely during rush periods at the circular where the A508, A4500 and A5123 converge.
  • Morning rush hours for Northampton should peak between 07:00 and 08:00, then normalise before the afternoon lunch hours of 13:00-15:00. During this period traffic tie-ups are common in commercial areas like the huge Brackmills Industrial Estate and other large business development zones. The thick of the evening rush occurs between 19:00 and 20:30, so have an alternate travel route handy to bypass gridlocked areas if necessary.
