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. This year we are celebrating the Centenary of Mackintosh's work here.

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. Famed, not only for its Charles Rennie Mackintosh design but now also as an elegant and special venue. Afternoon tea, fabulous food, stylish shopping, inspirational art exhibitions, business meetings and corporate events; some of the myriad reasons why our visitors time and again return to marvellous 78 Derngate.

Come and visit stylish, inspirational and historic 78 Derngate.

A warm welcome awaits you!
