Outstanding views of the pitch at Franklins Gardens
Located in Northampton, Franklins Gardens has been home to the professional rugby team Northampton Saints since 1888. It was originally called Melbourne Gardens and created as a pleasure garden: sports facilities, a lake, a swimming pool and a zoological garden were all features of the site at the end of the 19th century. Today, things look quite different: the stadium at Franklins Gardens was renovated in 2001, 2005 and 2015 to create today's sleek, modern venue that is regularly used to host conferences and events when the rugby team is not on the pitch. With most of the executive areas featuring plate glass walls that offer an unparalleled view of the action, this venue is definitely a good place to treat yourself to the VIP treatment. Down in the stands, however, you'll also get a great view of the game from up close - no matter what kind of experience you're after, tickets for Franklins Gardens offer you an historic venue and an exciting atmosphere.
Enjoy the atmosphere of Franklins Gardens stadium
The 15,249-seater capacity of Franklins Gardens makes the venue an exciting location to get up close to the action of a professional rugby game. Matches of the Northampton Saints against main rivals Leicester Tigers (at home in the slightly larger Welford Road) or Saracens (who play at London's Allianz Park) are particularly thrilling; as an incredibly successful team, however, you're bound to experience high-quality rugby at any of their matches. Northampton is just one hour away from major cities such as London and Birmingham and, with good public transport links and generous parking, Franklins Gardens could not be easier to get to. Whether you're attending a rugby match or another event here, you can make use of the traditional and cutting edge hospitality options and try to imagine, as you gaze out onto the pitch, how this ground would have looked as a pleasure garden visited by the great and good of nearby Northampton.
