The easiest way to get to the Northamptonshire Record Office is by car or taxi. If you need to travel by bus, you will need to get off at the stop immediately after the Queen Eleanor Cross on the London Road. Please check bus times before you travel. Please be aware that if you travel by bus that the next part of your journey will take you over the busy dual carriageway (A45 - Mereway) on foot. This can be extremely busy at certain times of the day, and unfortunately there is no pelican/zebra crossing.
