78 Derngate , Northampton Reviews - Write a Review
Really interesting house with exhibition space and tearoom. Shop also stocked lots of nice Rennie Mackintosh goods.
A jewel of a place to visit in Northampton a town of many surprises. From the outside you wonder what all the fuss is about but go one open the door and enter a design and architectural delight. You will receive a warm welcome and have the opportunity to book onto a guided tour which is thoroughly recommended. Learn about the Basset-Lowkes and their connection with Charles Renney-Mackintosh whose last commission was the refit of 78 Derngate. If you enjoy an English afternoon tea on fabulous bone china then stop a while and enjoy and drink in the history and ambience of a quirky but classy masterpiece.
This is a perfect example of a house decorated in the Mackenzie style. Well kept, well explained. Excellent little restaurant.
Super museum and an excellent guided tour. Staff willing but a little dippy.
Wonderful example of Art Deco. Enthusiastically restored.
