Did you know?:

  • The Royal & Derngate once was the home of the
Northampton Bus station and every factory fortnight last week in July and the first week in August for Northampton people.

  • And everyone  used to all go to their 
seaside holiday homes for two weeks, and all returned back to work in the second week of August.

  • Every year more than 350,000 visit Royal & Derngate.
