Move will make it even easier for people to enjoy Bedford’s night-time economy

From Monday 6th August, Allhallows Multi-Storey Car Park will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It will continue to be free to park at Allhallows Multi-Storey car park after 6pm. The extended opening hours will make it even easier for people to visit Bedford town centre, and enjoy all that the night-time economy has to offer with pubs, bars, restaurants and the town centre cinema.

Bedford Mayor, Dave Hodgson, said:

“The increased opening hours at Allhallows multi-storey car park is the latest in a series of initiatives to support our town centre, with continued investment and improvement of our car parks, and a series of free parking offers throughout the week and at weekends.”

Allhallows has had a major refurbishment as part of the regeneration of the Bedford Bus Station area.

New car parks have also been opened to the public, most recently St Mary’s Gardens car park south of the river.
