10 things to do in Northamptonshire, instead of cleaning the house.
1. Spend more time with the kids.
Instead of sending the kids to the bottom of the garden whilst you try to run the vacuum around the house, you could take them to Abington Park to play on the swings and get an ice cream.
2. Go to the pictures.
Whether you enjoy watching Vin Deisel in an other all action car chase or listen to voice of Jim Parsons as a little purple alien, you can’t beat a night out at the silver screen. So put down your toilet brush and make your way to your local Cinema. (Cineworld / Vue)
3. Go for a walk in the woods.
Why not trade your rubber gloves for walking boots and get some fresh air and exercise at Salcey Forest. Instead of lugging the Hoover up the stairs you could be climbing the tree top walk and enjoying the spring views.
4. Go out for a meal.
Put dinner in the oven and clean the kitchen or go out for a meal? It’s a difficult decision! Why not meet some friends at The Greyhound, Milton Malsor for some traditional British food.
5. Have a historical day out.
Rather than soaking your cleaning cloths, you could soak up some local history at Kelmarsh Country Fair ( Sunday 5th April – Monday 6th April )
6. Go on an Easter trail.
In place of ransacking the cupboard under the sink for the bathroom spray, you could spend your time searching for chicks bunnies and eggs at Wicksteed Park on Sunday 29th March.
7. Go to see the Animals
Don’t spend another second trying to remove cat fur from your sofa! For all you animal lovers why not visit Rookery Open Farm at Stoke Bruerne.
8. Have some fun in the water.
If you are looking for adventure and would rather be riding the waves than scrubbing the bath why not book a session at Nene Whitewater Centre.
9. A trip to the theatre.
Exchange the drama of housework for the drama of the stage at the Royal and Derngate, Northampton.
10. Retail therapy
After a long week at work, the last thing you want to be doing is cleaning the house. For all you shopaholics out there, take your time browsing around the Grosvenor centre, instead of rushing home to mop the floors and polish the tables.
