    The Harpur Centre is easily accessible by road from the A6 and only a few minutes drive from Junction 13 of the M1 or the A1 Black Cat Roundabout. If you are using a sat nav, please use MK40 1TJ as this will bring you straight to our basement car park. If you are travelling by train, we are only a five minute walk from Bedford Train Station or a short bus ride if you are carrying shopping bags on your way home. Our newly redeveloped Bedford Bus Station is less than a one minute walk away and taxis are available on our doorstep. Cycle racks are also available for those who prefer healthy, green travel!
