Polhill Park is located on campus and is approximately 10 minutes from the town centre, so you will never be far from the action Bedford has to offer. Bedford has a wide selection of restaurants offering a varied selection of cuisines from around the world, to suit all tastes and budgets. Close to the residence are two pubs, which offer a great food; The Park Public House and The White Horse are 10 minutes walk away and are extremely popular with students.
Other great Bedford pubs include The Rose and The Standard. We'd also recommend the Riverside area with restaurants like Miller and Carter, Zizzi’s, Wagamama’s and Albero Lounge (we recommend their quiz night and mid week deals). There's also a VUE cinema here.
