The only downfall of Rushden Lakes is the chaos on the roads filtering off a large roundabout on the A45, and single line traffic into the shopping centre with insufficient parking spaces. Once you are parked the shops and restaurants are very good, the lake...More

Having known Rushden for decades, and experiencing the demise of the high street over the years, it's refreshing to see Rushden with a little bit of life back in the old dog. In most other towns, Rushden Lakes would just be a hum-drum run of...More

Yes, I think there is a place to hire them just past the bus stop. Maybe the visitor centre can advise if you ring them. Bev

You could park in one of the free council car parks in Rushden town center and then walk down the High Street to ASDA then along the Greenway which comes out on Crown Park. Just a short walk over to Rushden Lakes then.
