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 award winning Castle Quay development, in the Cultural Quarter, is complete and almost fully occupied. The Riverside and bus station development schemes are moving forward and will deliver major new retail space, leisure facilities, hotel, cinema, housing and improved transport interchanges

 

Leisure Option 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
  • 6 cinema screens and 4 theatre venues
  • The Higgins Bedford (formally Cecil Higgins Art Gallery & Bedford Museum, recently completed upgrade)
  • Several 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."
