78 Derngate is a historical home and a Grade II* listed Georgian house that was re-modelled by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for his client W.J Bassett-Lowke. While the re-modelling happened in 1961, the house is said to have been built 100 years previous to that, between 1815-20. The house was bought for Bassett-Lowke as a wedding present. The house features a typical nineteenth century brick terrace, basement kitchen and offices, two ground floor rooms, two floors of two bedrooms each, and as attic. Also located here is a supporting museum that is located in house no 80. Today, the 78 Derngate houses a restaurant, art galleries, meeting rooms, a gift shop, a visitor reception and administration offices. One of the top things to do in Northampton, a visit to this house is a must!

Fab place to get a true feel of what Macintosh could achieve as a designer, hard to believe it was so long ago. Due to so much reference available this is a true replication and quite fascinating ! Coffee shop great too
Great place to visit and staff very helpful and friendly. From a wheelchair user's point of view I found it quite good; you can see they have really tried with what they have done. They do need a new portable ramp as the one they have isn't great. They have a lift to most floors and an accessible toilet.
We visited 7 heritage type properties in England this holiday, belonging to different organisations, most of them National Trust with lots of money and resources and yet this was one of the best, partly because of what it is, particularly because of our really good guide, John who brought the stories alive, the helpful staff and the tearoom. If you're going up or down the motorway, do stop here!
Really interesting to see. The guided tour is essential if you want to learn about the history behind such an interesting house.
Excellent CRM designs to see. Small museum, shop and dinning room. A few original pieces of Heal's furniture and early electrical kitchen equipment.
