Footfall

Bedford Town Centre Going From Strength to Strength

 

Latest footfall figures have shown that Bedford town centre is thriving, with a 5.3% increase in town centre footfall in the first six months of this year when compared to the same period in 2016.

 

Footfall has increased every single month this year, when compared to last year, and we are on track to see footfall increase for the 4th year in a row.

 

Footfall figures provide an indication of how many people are using the town centre and have shown that Bedford town centre is going from strength to strength, outstripping both regional and national performance.

 

Bedford town centre continues to see investment and improvement with exciting projects on the horizon. This month has seen several new restaurants open at Riverside Bedford, including Zizzi’s, Miller&Carter and MEXIco, alongside the return of town centre cinema to Bedford with Vue Cinema opening.

 

Mayor Dave Hodgson said "More and more people are visiting Bedford town centre, and the list of reasons to visit keeps growing. We have high quality independent traders, a vibrant events programme, the new attractions of Riverside Bedford and more.  This is all supported by measures such as our free parking deals, which are helping Bedford to buck the trend against a national picture of high street decline."
