About St Cuthberts Arcade

Situated just off the main shopping area in Bedford, St Cuthberts Arcade is the town's latest retail and shopping experience!

We have an exciting mix of shops, so come along and support your local businesses. Small artisan shops, crafts, beauty and more can be found under one roof - with a coffee shop!

Open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and close to Lurke Street carpark.


If you are looking for something a little different to the usual high street chains, why not support your local Bedford businesses and pop in to St Cuthbert's Arcade.


Our cosy coffee shop offers a choice of drinks and light snacks. Open whilst the Arcade is open (9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday).


Easy parking in the nearby Lurke Street Carpark or we are just off the main shopping area of Bedford. We look forward to seeing you!

"St Cuthbert's Arcade is unique and well worth a trip. There are several businesses that are boutique like with really creative people selling handmade or hand picked items.The atmosphere was fun and I was made to feel very comfortable. If you still have yet to visit I recommend you leave plenty of time to look at the range of stores under one roof. Bedford needed a hub for independent retailers and this is perfect!"
