Visit Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is only 50 minutes from Northampton on Route X4.

Indulge in some serious retail therapy, with over three hundred shops all under cover you’ll be spoilt for choice. Along with all your favourite high street names, there are plenty of small independent places too.  There are great markets to explore on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with antiques and bric-a-brac to rummage through on Thursdays.

If you want to relax and grab a bite to eat, visit The Hub . There’s plenty of choice from gourmet burgers to seafood, with cafes to keep you refreshed.

Xscape  is a fabulous complex with an indoor ski slope (with real snow!), bowling and rock climbing to name a few. There’s a variety of places to eat and some great sportswear names like Quiksilver and O’Neill. And for a more relaxing day out, Milton Keynes Theatre  is truly memorable with a varied programme of dance, drama, musicals, comedy and children’s shows.

You can also catch our X7 route to Milton Keynes. It combines with the X4 and leaves Northampton every half an hour. Download the X7 timetable.


Visit Peterborough

Peterborough is just under an hour from Corby and provides a great way to spend the day.

There are lots of things to do in this busy city, and a great place to start is shopping in Queensgate  right next to the bus station. With nearly 100 top name stores there’s bound to be something to suit everyone’s taste. 

Discover the story of the city at Peterborough Museum , where there are paintings from top British artists along with watercolours of the cathedral by Turner.

You can get on the Nene Valley Railway   just a short walk from the city centre and enjoy a delightful round trip through Nene Park – a must for families.

Peterborough Cathedral  is right in the city centre and is renowned for its medieval painted nave ceiling, dating from around 1230 and the only one of its type in Britain. You can take a guided tour of the cathedral floor, or for the more daring among you brave the heights of the tower for fantastic views of the city.
