Franklin's Gardens is a purpose-built rugby stadium in Northamptonmarker, Englandmarker. It is the home stadium of Northampton Saints. The stadium holds 13,600 people. The stadium also has 40 corporate boxes. Each can hold from 8 to 24 people. The four stands are: Tetleys Stand; South Stand; Church's Stand; and Sturtridge Pavilion. It is also a multi-functional conference centre as well as the only UK Guinness Premiership ground with it's own cenotaph.

The Northampton board recently announced they would be applying to increase capacity to 17,000 with the redevelopment of the North Stand. This would be funded by a £40 million investment by supermarket chain Asda, who would build a new store on the land currently used as training pitches.

Northampton Saints had an unbeaten home record that stretched from March 2007 to March 2009, much of this record was set during the Saint's 2007/08 promotion from the Guinness Championship (previously National Division One). During the 2008/09 Guinness Premiership season the Saints only lost at Franklin's Gardens on one occasion, to the Newcastle Falcons.
