Hotels in Wellingborough
Sitting on the north bank of the River Nene, the ancient market town of Wellingborough, surrounded by five wells, dates back to the 6th century.
Book one of our Wellingborough hotels and explore a fast-growing town – it is one of the government's growth areas – with a rich history.
Wellingborough was granted its market charter in 1201, and still holds a general market on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and a bric-a-brac market on Tuesdays.
The Swansgate Shopping Centre is the town's main shopping centre, with more than 50 stores. As well as plenty of national chains, the town has a number of more individual shops selling clothes, jewellery, knitting and sewing materials and kitchenware. Captain Neil's Toy Chest stocks a variety of toys and games, and there is a Polish delicatessen called Maria Delicatessen.
Wellingborough also has a leisure centre with two swimming pools and a gym and a laser tag centre.
You can explore the history of Wellingborough on the town heritage trail. You'll learn about the lives of some of its historical figures and the story of historic buildings including All Hallows' Church and Chester Farm. This 40-acre site, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, includes an Iron Age village, Roman ruins, a deserted medieval village called Chester-by-the-Water, and a 17th-century farmhouse.
The Castle Theatre is a theatre, cinema and arts centre which hosts a wide range of productions, including concerts, dance performances, comedy, plays, opera and children's shows. There are two theatres, one of which doubles as a cinema and offers regular film screenings, and a free art gallery which exhibits and sells work by local artists. There are also regular workshops and activities for children and adults.
Wellingborough Museum has a collection of more than 40,000 items spanning more than two million years of the area's history. These include 600-million-year-old fossils, Iron Age tools, Roman archaeological finds, coins, pottery, maps and a clock from the Middle Ages, 17th and 18th-century furniture and recreations of 20th-century rooms. You can learn about the Great Fire of Wellingborough, in which some 200 houses were destroyed, 19th and 20th-century industry, and how Wellingborough was affected by the two world wars. There's also a putting green and a sandpit. The museum is free and is closed on Sundays.
