The Place Theatre, Bedford

Maps and Directions

The Place can be found at the top of Bradgate Road, off Goldington Road (the A4280 - still shown on many maps, including Google, with its pre-bypass A428 designation).

Turn off Goldington Road into Bradgate Road (look for a brown 'theatre' sign here, not very easy to spot), and follow the road to the top. At the mini roundabout, turn right down a track, passing in front of the large green building (the Badminton Club), and continue for a further 60 metres - The Place is on the left. See the maps at the bottom of this page.

Travel by Car:

See the maps below. The main car park entrance is immediately before the theatre building, on the left - an overflow car park may also be open on the right. If you are using SatNav, a postcode of MK40 3DE will place you in Bradgate Road - you will then need to continue to the mini roundabout at the top of the road and turn right down the track (which is not marked on most SatNav databases).

From the Railway Station:

Consider taking a taxi directly from the railway station to The Place. If you wish to walk (total journey time on foot is around 25 to 35 minutes), or to take a bus, then leave the station and follow the gold/black signs to the Town Centre & Bus Station (6 to 8 minutes on foot), and see below.......

From the Bus Station:

From the Bus Station, a Number 5 Bus (destination Elm's Farm / Norse Road) runs down Goldington Road: Alight at the bus stop just past the rugby ground, and then continue down the road on foot and turn left into Bradgate Road (see the map below - total walking time is around 5 minutes). If you want to walk from the Bus Station, ask directions to St.Peter's Street and then to the Rugby Club, and see the map below - time on foot will be around 20 to 25 minutes. Note that no buses run after mid evening, and none on Sundays.
