Rowers along The Embankment

Bedford, being a major regional town, is a substantial retail centre with nearly 3 m sq ft of retail floorspace

 

The town centre is also undergoing a massive renaissance with large scale ‘quarter’ redevelopments. The Riverside Bedford waterfront leisure led scheme has now completed as well as the redevelopment of the Bus Station area and the award winning Castle Quay development, in the Cultural Quarter.  Other schemes in development such as the Harpur Shopping Centre, Town Centre Transport Strategy and One Public Estate Programme will continue to deliver major new retail space, leisure facilities, housing and improved transport interchanges.

 

Leisure Options include:


  • 470 retail stores and major redevelopment schemes planned
  • 30 miles of water, to walk beside and enjoy
  • 2,350 acres of accessible green space
  • 2 cinemas and 4 theatre venues
  • The Higgins Bedford (formally Cecil Higgins Art Gallery & Bedford Museum, recently completed upgrade)
  • Numerous leading adrenalin and sports attractions
  • 560 miles of countryside footpaths

"Invest in Bedford, the first point of call for retail, industrial, office and land property options. The perfect setting for access to M1, A1 and London just 40 minutes away."
