Wow, from the outside it looks average but when you get inside it’s a great little place. The hour show is well worth the money and the BugKeeper was brilliant. So good with kids and our daughter got to handle so many creepy crawly’s and Sally the Tarantula. Thanks again.

We are an open, working farm with play areas, acres of beautiful walks, a large variety of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows. Activities on offer include free barrel rides, piglet racing, cuddle corner petting sessions with the smaller animals. We also run pony rides and tractor tours of the farm at a small extra cost. Lots of picnic areas and a large family restaurant.
Visited here in half term week with my young grandson, how anyone can spend all day here is beyond me, ok suppose if your old enough for soft play area, I personally think it be better to pay for this facility if you use it. So 3 adults and a year old baby cost 22.35; to see rabbits, hens ducks and couple more animals, sheep, which you can see for free in countryside. Won’t be visiting again sorry to say. Very disappointing

W.E. are Warner Edwards: great friends, innovative craft distillers and creators of award winning, hand-made artisan gins. We are passionate about quality, flavour and authenticity with a core goal to save the world from mediocre gin! From our 200 year old barn on Falls Farm in the picturesque village of Harrington, Northamptonshire we lovingly distil a range of naturally flavoursome, fantastically smooth, award-winning gins using our farm’s natural spring water, grain spirit and home-grown ingredients. Each batch is small, and every single bottle is handcrafted by us, from the filling to the wax seal and label finishing.
The "Curiosity" tour starts with a nice G&T when you arrive. The hostess Helen was excellent and well versed in her craft/product. As this is a small craft distillery the tour was short but informative. The still (named Curiosity) was immaculate, and it was great fun to taste the gin immediately out of the still - only a fingertip dab as it is 99+% alcohol at that point! After the tour we tasted six different gins - all "neat" so you can really smell and taste the differences. This was the best part; I have now found gins worthy of sipping without mixers. We purchased two bottles at the gift shop as we left. Lovely time, thank you!

There is only roadside parking available and at best only room for 5 cars or so. The non members entry charge of £4.20 is not cheap considering you can cover everything in less than 30 minutes. Three floors, three gables, triangular windows and lots of "3" connections but little else.

Gorgeous and Historic Saxon/Norman/Medieval church open for guided historical tours. Tour will include links to the nearby Eleanor cross, the finest in England, pagan past, Saxon/Norman architecture and sculpture, the ancient hunting lodge and the many Kings and Queens who worshiped there.The tour is free. Resting in pre-Roman village containing three pubs, tea room and shop, picnic grounds by medieval bridge, grade one listed buildings and thatched cottages. All within minutes walk of church.
I just did what I never thought I would. Got married. My wife is from Geddington. We returned to get married her in a church that has over 1000 years of history. Amazing! I suggest that those that appreciate history to come and experience history. Thank you all for an amazing day that will stand in my memory the rest of my life!

Wicksteed Park is based in Kettering, Northamptonshire and the large 147 acre ground is a wonderful mix of rides, attractions and beautiful countryside and wildlife. Wicksteed also boasts two private function rooms, ideal for weddings, private functions and corporate hire in the Northamptonshire and Midlands region. The is also a family camp site which boasts a modern loo and shower block, and beautiful views over the lake. It's the perfect way to make the most of Wicksteed Park. You wake up just seconds away from our rides, cafés and Playgrounds, and get special second-day discounts on our wristbands. 2018 opening dates will be updated shortly.
Even in the winter there was enough going on to keep my young grandchildren entertained. Although the rides can be pricey during the summer months, there are still plenty of ‘free’ activities for children to enjoy which was the ethos for the park in the first place.

Attended tonight's show of Genesis Connected, which I believe was a kind of homecoming show for most of the band. First impressions of the Theatre were very positive. Plenty of parking, a spacious and well-stocked bar which was not over-priced. Our seats L1, L2 and L5 (booked due to my daughters wheelchair use) was our first disappointment. So far apart? Why all that space between the seats which meant my wife wasn't really with us and my daughter who was next to me was still far away because of the need to use a platform. The show started and the sound was poor, it did improve, but why didn't the soundcheck pick that up? Then people arriving late. People in the wrong seats. Waving and shouting to friends or relatives across the hall whilst the show was on. Getting up for drinks, more getting up got the loo. Others getting up to leave for reasons I don't know! Chaos. The ushers behind us chatting away, too busy trying to see who was recording on their phones. A complaint in the interval meant there wasn't a squeak from them for set 2, but then the people in front of us were chatting away and I had to request they pipe down too. Ok, this was a family gathering for the band, but have some respect for those who also attended. Second half was much better as the songs were more upbeat and the crowd noise wasn't as intrusive as the it was for the first half of mainly ballads. Probably the most bizarre audience for a show I can ever recall!

This fantastic piece of history is over 800 years old. How it survived is amazing. It hasn't changed at all in all the old pics that are produced of it. Mind boggling!

A unique shopping complex welcoming individual and independent businesses to share in a new, exciting experience for both retailer and customer.
While I was staying with a friend in Kettering she took me to this new indoor market, just off Market Street. It occupies the site of a former fire station, which was also an ambulance station, and a garage. Unfortunately on a wet weekday afternoon the place was almost deserted. In the rain, the courtyard even looked a bit shabby, despite the colourful murals. The interior made a much better impression. It’s a striking, huge open space on different levels to which the white-washed walls convey a nice unity. The market regroups a large variety of small local retailers selling all kinds of things: vintage clothes and bags, jewellery, toys, beauty products, candles, home ware, vinyl records, beer and cider and even American sweets. There is a central till point so the units do not have to be manned all the time. The shops looked attractive enough and it was nice to explore the different levels, but there were so few people around the place almost felt like an unpopular museum. The bar was (already?) closed, only the hip barber shop seemed to have customers. As The Yards’ opening hours (from 10 am to 5.30 pm or 6 pm on Friday) coincide with work hours, people with a job will have to visit on Saturday or Sunday.
