Accommodation on Arrival

If you arrive unannounced or out of hours you may be required to organise your own accommodation.

Before you travel, you may need to book some accommodation for your first night in Northampton.

If you arrive in Northampton without accommodation you will have to stay in a hotel. Hotels in the UK are expensive (often more than £40 per night), so we strongly recommend you book accommodation in advance.
