Rushden Lakes Shopping Centre

Home to tens of big names, it’s surely a place for you to get something you need. Even better, there’re cafes and restaurants for you to take a rest, as well as the lakes where you’re able to immerse yourself into mother nature!

Market Harborough

The Market is a charming market town full of history, culture, delicious food and independent retailers. Our bus stops at Harborough Indoor Market, which has 800 years of history and over 60 independent traders. There is surely something for everyone!

Garden Centre

Garden Centre is another popular destination in warmer months. We’ll organise trips to garden centres suggested by our users.

Seaside town / Afternoon tea / Christmas dinner

Although the journey could be a bit longer, it’s still worth it to treat yourself a relaxing trip and an afternoon sitting in front of the sea.
