Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed and are subject to planning permission.
Bedford and its surrounding area is a lovely place to live. It’s one of England’s smallest counties, but is within close proximity to hotspots such as Oxford, Cambridge and London. Bedford is particularly known for its beautiful riverside setting, boasting views of the River Great Ouse, and the remains of the town’s medieval castle, Bedford Castle Mound.
The town has plenty of things to do – for those who like sports, there are several different clubs you can support, including cricket, rowing and rugby. There are lots of restaurants, cafes and shops, and three theatres where you can see everything from exhibitions to live comedy shows. Local markets are held regularly and attract both locals and tourists alike.
Bedford is well connected to the rest of the UK, especially by the Thameslink railway line, which can have you to central London in 35 minutes. Bus routes are available throughout the city and surrounding areas and there are major roads that run around the outskirts to Northampton, Leicester, Luton and Peterborough.
