    because i havent got the money atm, and we both liked it last time we went. its the time together thats more important to us, after christmas we'll go somewhere nicer.

    What kind of things do you like doing??

    Lived in Northampton for 13 years. It truely is the armpit of the midlands. Nothing good there at all. Sorry to spoil it!! If you go further out some of villages are ok. Pitsford has a nice reservoir for walks/cycling. Errr can't think of anything else!! What sort of things are you in to? Where abouts are you staying?

    As it's a serious thread then............do you drive? If so then a trip to the shopping centre at Milton Keynes isn't far away and is decent for shopping and it also has a cinema etc.

    You've also got Wellingborough and Kettering down the road from there but they are just small towns.

    TWOC?

    Unfortunately i don't. The only times i've been in the last 5 years have been to watch footy i'm afraid. Went on a few nights out up there years ago when my step-sister was at Uni there but i can't remember where we went. lol

    Not so many nice pubs/restuarants in the town centre really - lots of nice village pubs around though.

    I hav been away a few years but there used to be an American diner called buddies diner just of abington street. It did huge portions if you like American food. Couple of decent Indians on wellington street aswell. Can't remember the names.

    Wellingborough Road used to be great for a pub crawl - one end to the other into town then onto a club! Not done that for a few years though.

    This is a nice indian restuarant.

    i have no idea what youre talking about

    Red Hot in Sixfields or Fusion which is near the town. Both are all you can eat and have a wide selection from around the world.

    Take the A45 to Peterborough

    Don't be cruel. I have family in Northampton, and worked in Peterborough for 2 years.

    Both are absolute hell holes. Disgusting vile places, though less Polish people in Northampton. Thats either a plus or a negative depending on how racist you are.

    Believe it or not you are quite right there on both accounts. BUT the o p could have gone to Grimsby instead of Northampton. Do you know anyone who has been to Grimsby & not come away suicidal ?

    Take her dogging ,lots of little country carparks.
    Put some excitement into your lives

    Northampton - where the girls offer you a **** in exchange for a hamburger...really this happened to me, not that I took her up on the offer.

    Been there a couple of times. There is a large park which has a bandstand and on weekends usually is being used, also the park has an bird aviary that is free to roam around and a nice cafe. Not sure what it is called though. As for bars, i came across this one that was like a 'cave' which was very different, not sure if it is still there though as this was about 5 years ago.

    I'm really worried about your sanity. This is clearly made up, everyone knows its made up, and YOU know everyone knows you've made it up.

    You have to question why you post this kind of rubbish so often? You are turning into a male DLM!

    no it really did happen, I was on my own eating a mcdonalds outside the restaurant sat on the bench she walked up to me plain as day and came out with it. It was during a low point in my life, I slept in my car drunk next to the multi story car park that night.

    Me looking at the bar July 2004, sorry was on a N73.
