Relatively cheap because it's very rural. Town centre is nearly 2 miles away. Social aspect was poor but London and Leicester is a train ride away. Wellingborough is an ideal location to travel to other cities.

There isn't a nightlife here because it isn't a university town. There isn't much choice for nightlife unless you like whetherspoons or very traditional pubs.
