: if you are coming from the south travel up the A1 and turn east onto the A605, just before you reach Peterborough. Travel about two miles in a westerly direction and then turn right at the roundabout just after the village of Warmington. Fotheringhay is signposted from there. Parking is easy as there is plenty of space along the main road.
From the north take the A1 as far south as the A47 junction, turn right onto the A47 and almost immediately turn left onto the A6118. Pass through the village of Bentley and follow the signs to Fotheringhay.
Travelling from the west, take the A47 towards Peterborough, almost to its junction with the A1 and then turn right onto the A6118 and follow the signs.
: The nearest station is Peterborough, which is about five miles away. You will almost certainly need to get a taxi from Peterborough as buses are few and far between.
By Bus : This is not recommended as there are few buses travelling this route. A number 4S travels between Oundle and Thrapston hourly and there is alleged to be another bus from Stamford, but we cannot find accurate details.
is a small, but pretty, village, deep in the Northamptonshire countryside,
surrounded on three sides by the River Nene. It is a ribbon development built
of the beautiful limestone that characterises the area. The castle was the
family seat of the Duke of York, and the location of the execution of
Mary, Queen of Scots.
