Delapre Abbey

West Northants

About Venue

Northampton's heritage treasure located just a mile or so from the town centre is alive with the possibilities of the present and surrounded by the echoes of the past.

Threatened with destruction many times during its 900 year history, Delapré Abbey has managed to survive and has recently been part restored with support from Northampton Borough Council, devoted volunteers and a £3.65 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

As a visitor to Northampton’s newest visitor attraction, you’ll experience tales of the Abbey told across five storytelling zones, you’ll investigate unexpected views, strange doorways and eccentric architecture and make your own memories in a building brimming with history.
