The Quadrant


Annette Clynes


February 26, 2024


The Quadrant in Dunstable opened in 1966 and serves as a central shopping destination free from flowing traffic. As of today, the Quadrant has 42 shops, ranging from high street brands to independent shops, bakeries and cafés. The centre is open seven days a week, although shop opening times will vary. There is an adjoining NPC car park accessible 24 hours a day, Monday through Sunday.

It’s a pleasure to see how many independent shops we have in the Quadrant, and some of them started by having a stall at Middle Row Market. The Quadrant Shopping Centre offers a great choice of shops and food outlets.

Kazmicks has a diverse café-style menu throughout the day and transforms into a Hot Rock steak restaurant on Friday and Saturday evenings. Archie’s Bakery provides cakes, hot pastries, sandwiches and drinks. Taste of Lahore serves popular Pakistani cuisine. For a unique gift, have a look around The Geek, The Witch and The Wardrobe or Theo’s future. Try the immersive Locked Escape Rooms perfect for families, friends, corporate teams, or special events. For details on shops, events and general information, visit The Quadrant’s website:

Dunstable Town Council work in partnership with The Quadrant to host a range of joint events throughout the year. The biggest and definitely the loudest is the Dinosaur event, ‘Dino Day’. I am delighted to share that this year, on Saturday 27 July, we are set to make it even greater with a dinosaur parade and show.

The Pumpkin Party in October consistently draws an enthusiastic crowd, and we’re confident you’ll love the pumpkin show! Join us in The Quadrant for these exciting free events.
