Directions to The Embankment
We are right in the heart of Bedford on The Embankment by the River Ouse, just off the A6. Arriving from the West (Milton Keynes & the M1) follow the A421 towards Bedford, then join the A6 and continue until you cross the river and can turn left onto the Embankment. We are half-way along on the right hand side.
We have a small car park to the rear of the pub, which is first come first served. On street parking is available along the Embankment and on adjoining roads, these are pay and display between 8am and 6pm.
The Embankment is in the heart of the town and a short walk will take you to the Harper Centre, Bedfordshire’s premier shopping venue, the Bedford Castle Mound and Embankment Gardens, or the Museum and Art Gallery.
