London Luton Airport
London Luton Airport is the most distant of London's airports and is 57 km from the city centre to the North West of the city. It is located 3 km from the Bedfordshire town of Luton and is located close to the M1 motorway with fast rail links to the centre of London. Luton is the 4th largest of the so-called London airports after Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. The majority of the airlines using Luton serve airports in Europe though a small number of long haul destinations are also available. The airport serves as a hub for the low cost carriers easyJet and RyanAir as well as charter airlines Monarch and Thomson. In 2008 the airport handled more than 10 million passengers. Car parking and hotels are available on the airport and neighbouring areas.
Fotheringhay is a small village with a surprisingly large church which dates to the time when this small Northants village was a very important place. The church was built in the 15th Century and is the burial place of Dukes and Duchesses of York including the parents of Richard III. When Mary Queen of Scots was locked up in the nearby Fotheringhay Castle, it is believed that she was given a room overlooking the (protestant) church to remind her constantly of the 'error of her ways' in being a Catholic. The Church receives a lot of support from the Richard III Society who endowed it in 2000 with a new Organ.

Rockingham Castle was built 900 years ago for Richard the Conqueror and sits on the top of a ridge of hills giving views of the valley beyond, across five different counties. Despite its address being listed as Market Harborough (a very attractive market town) it's actually closest to the industrial town of Corby and visitors would do better to follow road signs to Corby rather than Market Harborough The Watson family who own the castle have lived there for 450 years and only one other family owned the castle before them. The grounds and castle are open in the summer months - roughly from Easter to the end of September. Between Easter and the end of May they are only open on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays (of which there are two in May). From June to September they are open on Tuesdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays. Opening hours are 12 noon to 5 pm. If you can form a group of 20 or more visitors, they will open on additional days by prior appointment - there are links on the website to arrange such visits. On open days the entry price is £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for Old Aged Pensioners and £4.50 for children up to 16 years of age. Dogs are welcomed in the gardens but not in the castle. Special events such as Christmas Fayres and Craft Shows are held periodically - check the website for details. The castle is also available for weddings and other private functions.
