The new terrace is a new 154,000 sq ft leisure extension at Rushden Lakes and will include a 14-screen cinema with various new restaurant and leisure operators.

Paul Rich, centre manager at Rushden Lakes, is thrilled to announce that the West Terrace will be opening with the first of many arrivals being Five Guys.

He said: “During the summer, we had a whole host of celebrations including our first birthday and the opening of our East Terrace, with newcomers Hobbycraft, Cotswold Outdoor, Wren Kitchens, Decathlon and AJ Cycles joining the line-up. “We’re really pleased that the celebrations are continuing with our fantastic leisure terrace.

“Now that the leisure phase is well under way, we’re excited to be welcoming such well-known food chains to the park, continuing to ensure Rushden Lakes is the place to shop, eat and explore.

“It continues to be an exciting time here at Rushden Lakes, and we’ve got plenty more to look forward to as we head towards Christmas and into the new year.”
