Rushden Lakes brings together the very best in retail, leisure and dining, set beside 200 acres of protected Nene Wetlands nature reserve and a stunning lake. Visitors are able to enjoy shopping, walking, alfresco dining and canoeing in equal measure.
Rushden Lakes has attracted local independents and many new and well-established brands to Northamptonshire, including Primark, JD Sports and M&S, as well as Jigsaw, Hobbs, Bill’s and Wagamama.
New retail and leisure developments are underway with the first phase now open which includes Rock Up, 360 Play, Paradise Island, Nando’s and Five Guys. 


Prominently located on the A45, 1.5 miles from Rushden, Rushden Lakes offers excellent links to Northampton, Peterborough, Milton Keynes, Cambridge and Leicester.
The introduction of a new pedestrian footbridge over the A45 provides easy access to nearby Rushden town centre on foot or by bike.
