Bedford Borough Council says that it has made it even easier for people to use this town centre car park.

People can now pay for an annual season ticket monthly rather than having to find the money upfront, at Queen Street and a number of other town centre car parks.

Bedford Borough Council has frozen car parking season tickets prices since 2017. This, it said, means that someone can park in the town centre at Queen Street car park for less than £650 for the whole year, or less than £12.50 a week.

Queen Street Car Park has been awarded the Park Mark Award and a Disabled Parking Award. It is located just behind Tavistock Street, a 10 minute walk to the river straight down Bedford High Street.

It’s not just people who work in Bedford who can benefit from parking offers. There is free parking available every day in Bedford town centre:

  • Up to two hours free parking at Queen Street car park every day from Monday-Saturday
  • Up to two hours free parking at all Council-owned town centre car parks on Saturdays
  • Free parking all day every Sunday at all Council-owned town centre car parks
  • Free parking after 6pm at all Council-owned town centre car parks, except River Street

Cllr Charles Royden, portfolio holder for Highways and Transport, said:

“Queen Street car park really does offer a great option for people working or studying in the town centre. This car park is a short walk to town and we have continued to freeze all of our parking charges again this year, keeping the prices down for residents and visitors.”
