If I can extend the question to in and around Kettering, I would vote for:
Manor House Museum and Alfred East Art Gallery
Triangular Lodge
Wicksteed Park
Boughton House
Kirby Hall

Well, what can I say about the delight of Kettering food, well to start with they could hop of the train and nip into the nearest newsagents for a chocolate bar. Then there is a rather good cake shop opposite the library - does very good carrott cake. The Royal Hotel is ok (but they served cold gravy at a function that I went to). However, the staff are lovely, even in their very bad black uniforms. MacDonalds are ok - if you like something cheap. Likewise would recommend a very nice sandwich shop, super staff, can't think what it is called but do excellent corn beef sandwiches and lovely cherry muffins. Oh and the food at the bowling alley is ok - and then you can go on the arcade machines afterwards for some fun.

Boughton House - the "English Versailles" - must be on the list for any French visitor.
