Latest Bedford Hospital parking reviews
Location is at Tesco (not on the road from postcode) all good, plenty of space, easy walk to town.Tom
Short walk to Bedford hospital, worked wellLucy
So simple to park and there is wide enough spaces to park any car even if you dry a 4by 4.Neil
Easy to find. Will use againAmy
Easy to find, 10 mins walk from town centre and pretty good situation for rush getting through rush hour quickly. I would say large cars will only just fit in spaces and would be difficult to get in/out of if more that 2 people were parked there, but I've been here all week and had no issues!Molly
Quite easy to find, quiet area and not far from the train station at all, will probably use again if I have to get to London on a weekday, save from looking around the full car park of the station . very convenient.Jinto
Very straight forward! Guaranteed parking space within walking distance to train station! Very pleased would recommend !Tracey
