Overview
More
78 Derngate is the only house in England designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It is now a multi award-winning visitor attraction offering an unforgettable day out in Northampton. Designed and remodelled by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1916, the house has been meticulously restored and opened to the public. On site: a boutique restaurant, light-filled art galleries, a stylish design shop and elegant spaces that can be hired for meetings, events and functions. 78 Derngate was the architect's final major commission; his visionary patron, Northampton model engineer, W.J Bassett-Lowke. It is the only place in the world where Mackintosh's mature architectural and interior style can be seen in their original setting. As such, the house has drawn many thousands of visitors from around the globe. Now you can follow in their footsteps and see this unique work from one of Britain's most influential and celebrated designers. Please note: To post a review for The Dining Room Restaurant ( a separate business ) you should search for their separate TripAdvisor page. Thankyou!

Really enjoyed my visit here for afternoon tea with a friend. The food was absolutely delicious. Wandered around the house first and took in the beautiful decor and the interesting history. They also have a lovely little gift shop. I can reccomend the tours too.

Hello, I am afraid we cannot allow dogs into the house, but there is a garden and if possible your dog could perhaps be left with somebody or tied up outside (if the weather permits!)
