Rent a Northampton Parking Space
Northampton is the county town of Northamptonshire in England’s East Midlands. It lies on the River Nene, around half way between London and Birmingham. The area was settled at least as far back as the Bronze Age and was once home to Northampton Castle, a royal residence. Once one of the most famous Norman castles in England, Northampton Castle was destroyed to make way for Northampton Railway Station in 1879.
During the industrial revolution, Northampton gained a canal and became an industrial centre for footwear and leather manufacture. Nowadays, the town has largely left its industrial history behind it, but it is still a world capital for the manufacture of shoes. Northampton isn’t just about shoes, though - it also has lots of other attractions to offer visitors and residents alike. The town contains one of Britain’s largest and oldest market squares, two shopping centres, and plenty of entertainment venues.

Latest Northampton parking reviews
Easy to find, plenty of spaces and good price.Susan
Arrived dead on time to find car park very busy. A manager was in the car park sorting out spaces as they had two conferences on. Despite the lack of spaces he found us a space on a grass area which was fine, helping to guide us into the space. He also apologised and said if we had not already paid he would have let us park for free. We were very happy with the manager in question and the way he dealt with the situation. The car park was convenient for the station (5 mins) although I did note that the station car park was in practice half empty even though it was after nine am. The cost of this space was however cheaper of course. No problems collecting the car and all was well.Ian
