Welcome to The Harpur Centre
The Harpur Centre, Bedford’s premier shopping centre, is open seven days a week with 36 stores trading over two levels. The Harpur Centre benefits from having the most popular car park in town with free parking for visitors on Sundays. The Centre is easy to find and only a few metres from the bus station and a 10-minute walk from the train station.
With stores from Argos to Ann Summers, Grape Tree to Harpur Coffee, EE to Topshop, including the only Primark in Bedfordshire, you’re sure to find everything you need in one convenient location. The Harpur Centre is undercover so you won’t get cold and wet between stores and is packed full of the latest fashions, all important gifts and perfect places to meet with friends for a coffee. You’ll find national favourites, Boots, WHSmiths and Argos alongside Toni & Guy and Supercuts salons, five mobile phone stores and many more. Blue Inc and Topman are a must for male fashion lovers who can then treat their special someone to chocolates from Thorntons, jewellery from Fraser Hart or perfume from Superdrug and The Fragrance Shop.
Services include ladies, gents and disabled toilets along with baby changing facilities. The adjacent Howard Centre offers a Shopmobility Scheme. (Telephone No. 01234 348000)
The Harpur Centre prides itself on being part of our local community, working in partnership with local charities, hosting promotional events throughout the year and ensures visitors benefit from the best one-stop shopping experience possible.
