Welcome to the all-new This is Kettering website, designed to provide visitors and residents alike with information on upcoming events, things to do and places to eat, drink and shop in the heart of North Northamptonshire.
From fun family activities at local attractions and some of the best theatrical and comedy entertainment around, to fabulous ways to enjoy our stunning countryside or finding out things you didn’t know about our heritage; Kettering offers something for everyone.
This website follows up on the This is Kettering Facebook page and we’re keen to be positive and celebrate the highlights and hidden gems in and around the local area – this is a perfect opportunity to show the real Kettering and the great things that we have to offer.
The Borough has a wide variety of shops and restaurants, a vibrant nightlife and fun family activities at local attractions, including the country’s first theme park, Wicksteed Park. The local area provides beautiful rolling countryside and quaint villages to visit as well as stately homes such as Boughton House and Rushton Hall and historical landmarks such as the English Heritage Sites of Rushton Triangular Lodge and Geddington’s Eleanor Cross.
We’ll be adding more content as we go including new food and drink listings and regularly providing information on local events, such as Kettfest and Kettering By The Sea. In our regular blog we will provide a special focus on some of the best places to visit, events not to be missed and places to stay, as well as giving advice on how to make the most of your time in Kettering.
Whether you live locally or are just visiting for a day, we’ll look to show you that there’s plenty to do in and around Kettering!
***We’ve also launched an Instagram page to show off and highlight some of the best sights from around the Borough of Kettering – find us at @ThisisKettering on the app. We’d love to feature photos from local people around the borough too so if you’d like to have your photo included tag in @thisiskettering, use #thisiskettering or email firstname.lastname@example.org ***
