Fun for the whole family

Make memories with your loved ones!


There is so much to do here at Bell Plantation!

It’s our mission to make the centre a great day out for the whole family and we are always striving to expand what we offer. Take a look at some of the things you can do during your vist!

Attend an event

We run a range of events throughout the year for both adults and children.
Our children’s events have included free Easter and Halloween hunts, bulb planting and bird house painting to name just a few!

Our adults’ events have ranged from learning how to create spectacular hanging baskets and gardening talks, to learning to make your very own Christmas wreath!

Keep an eye on our events page for forthcoming events. To be one of the first to hear about our events, and for priority booking, sign up to our Loyalty Scheme and you will receive our regular newsletters.

Visit the animals

Did you know we have a Poultry Centre on site with over 100 birds! Take a wander round to meet our chickens, ducks, geese, guinea fowl and quail. If you visit in the spring, you might also get to meet some chicks or ducklings!

In the school holidays we often have two Pygmy Goat visitors from owner, Ashley Warren’s farm too!

You might also like to pop in to Northampton Reptile and Fish Centre whilst you’re here and meet some of their snakes, lizards, spiders and other gorgeous insects, lizards and fish! Or, take a walk through to Alan Muxlow Garden Design to visit the bird aviary and Koi Carp


Take a break in the Plantation Café

Our Plantation Café has the simple ethos of fresh, home-made food served in a friendly and relaxing environment.

We have an extensive breakfast and lunch menu, as well as daily lunch specials, including vegetarian and vegan options (and we are happy to adapt other dishes to suit where possible).

We also offer a quintessentially English Afternoon Tea which is great for gatherings with friends and family.


Do some Courtyard Shopping

We have a range of other retailers on site at Bell Plantation including Frocks & Shoes, My Little Vintage, Towcester Mill Brewery, Hot Tubs @ Home, The Beauty Works, The Barber Works, Towcester Reptile and Fish Centre and Alan Muxlow Garden Design.


Visit our Indoor Play – Coming soon!

You may have seen that we started some further development work in October 2019! This will provide us with a brand-new kitchen, further café space and a children’s indoor play area! To keep up to date with the development, click below!

Popped in to pick up a waterproof jacket for himself. Found the very thing - a wax jacket at a good price. This was similar to my one which we bought from there a couple of months ago.Job done.
