Things to see and do in Kempston

Kempston sits on the southern bank of the River Great Ouse, which you can follow to head north west for some relaxing riverside walks towards Box End. 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.


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

Kempston transport links

The A421 road runs to the south of town, which connects Kempston to the M1 motorway in around 10 minutes. The local train station is Kempston Hardwick, which you can use to get to Bedford in just five minutes. From there you can get to London in less than 40 minutes, making Kempston a viable option for commuters to the capital.

The Kempston property scene

Despite its great commuter links, house prices in Kempston are lower than the average across the rest of Bedfordshire. Also lower than neighbouring Bedford, buying a home in Kempston could prove to be an excellent investment, giving you more house for your money and great future potential.
