Nestled upon the shores of the River Nene in the West Midlands, Northampton is currently populated by more than 200,000 residents and it can trace its historical roots as far back as the Bronze Age. In more modern times, this medium-sized city is known for its accelerated rates of urban renewal when compared to other areas within the United Kingdom. Historic locations, such as 78 Derngate, are complemented by wide open-air spaces, including Sywell Country Park and Abington Park. There are no fewer than 33 suburbs associated with Northampton, and major attractions include Northampton Market Square and the impressive Billing Aquadrome. The regional Enterprise Rent-A-Car office is on St. Andrews Road. It is conveniently found straddling the A509 motorway, so arriving here by car is simple. Due to inbound congestion during the morning rush hour, it may be prudent to arrive in the early evening. The closest rail terminal is the Northampton train station.
