You may be surprised to discover then, that the marina is just two miles from the bustling town centre of Bedford and only 40 minutes by train from London. With everything you need for waterside life either on site or nearby, you can relax and enjoy this idyllic and secure location with a residential or leisure mooring, or as a visitor.

Things to do in Bedfordshire and nearby

Priory Waterside & Marina is surrounded by the many acres of the peaceful and wildlife-rich Priory Park, where you can walk, cycle, picnic and play. Also nearby is the RSPB nature reserve, The Lodge at Sandy. When shopping and nightlife beckon, take the short walk into Bedford, with its impressive range of shops, museums, theatres, bars and restaurant, or catch the direct train to London. Bedfordshire is also lucky enough to have several excellent golf courses. While the golfers play, the non-golfers can spend the day at the magnificent Woburn Abbey and Gardens or Woburn Safari Park, which are less than half an hour’s drive.


Life on the water at Priory Waterside and Marina

"Living at Priory marina is such an idyllic way of life. One can see the changing of seasons even though we are close to Bedford town.  On days the townsfolk come in to visit the lake and the park right next door to us and to see the families and young people enjoying these lovely surroundings is so uplifting". 

John and Rosemary Kitchiner - Priory Residents
