Things to see and do in Kempston

Back in town you can take advantage of the large Addison Howard Park, perfect for you, your kids or your dog to stretch your legs, enjoy some sunshine on a nice day and use the play areas. 

Heading east along the river brings you to Bedford in no time at all, which is packed with great places to visit. Whether you’re heading to the castle, catching the latest exhibits at the Higgins Art Gallery and Museum or learning more about famous author John Bunyan at the dedicated museum, there are lots of ways to unwind in your free time.

Education

Popular local primary schools include Bedford Road Primary and Camestone School, while Kempston Rural Primary is another great option. With a catchment area just west of the town centre, it’s classed as outstanding by Ofsted. 

If you’re more interested in secondary schools, then Daubeney Academy is a good choice according to the education board. Another great option is Kempston Challenger Academy, found just to the south west of the town centre, which caters for children aged from nine to 18. Wixams Academy - which opened in 2017 - is another local option to the south of town
