Hotels in Biggleswade
Standing alongside the River Ivel in Bedfordshire, Biggleswade is one of the county's rapidly growing market towns. It's twinned with Erlensee in Germany. The town was first granted a market in the 13th century. It's now large enough to have two football teams and a rugby team.
Biggleswade hotels make great bases for exploring nearby Bedford. The town's also close to the A1(M) for motorway links.
Dining and shopping in Biggleswade
When it's time to eat, you have the pick of pizza, fish and chips, Indian and Chinese food. Step into The Lounge wine bar for a nightcap – it's an upmarket café during the day.
Self-catering hotels can be a cost-effective option, as Biggleswade's ASDA isn't far away. The town's shopping streets offer everything you might need on holiday: toiletries, new clothes, cosmetics and footwear.
As part of the town's expansion, the London Road retail park was earmarked in 2014 to house more big chain stores. Your next nearest large-scale shopping complex is the Harpur Centre in Bedford.
