Bracknell town centre regeneration

Bracknell town centre is being transformed into an exciting, vibrant destination for the people of Bracknell Forest and the wider Thames Valley area by Bracknell Regeneration Partnership (BRP) with Bracknell Forest Council.

The regenerated town centre, called The Lexicon Bracknell, will create a new social and cultural heart for the area - bringing a high-quality mix of shops, restaurants and entertainment within vibrant public spaces to the town centre.      

Mace, the main contractor for the £240m redevelopment, started construction work in late March 2015.

Shops, restaurants and a 12-screen cinema will open in September 2017.

Retailers already committed to the scheme include:

  • Fenwick
  • M&S
  • Primark
  • H&M
  • Arcadia (Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Burton)
  • Next
  • River Island
  • Fat Face
  • Smiggle
  • Footlocker
  • Beaverbrooks
  • Carphone Warehouse
  • Vodafone
  • Pandora
  • Kiko Milano
  • New Look
  • L'Occitane


Restaurants already committed to the scheme include:

  • Nando’s
  • Zizzi
  • Carluccio’s
  • Gourmet Burger Kitchen
  • Coast to Coast
  • Pizza Express
  • Las Iguanas
  • Wagamama
  • Chimichanga
  • Tang's
  • Bill's
  • Patisserie Valerie

A new 12-screen Cineworld multiplex will also be built and Young's will occupy the newly refurbished The Bull.

The regeneration also takes in the former Charles Square area, which will become home to a two-storey Primark as well as other shops, cafés and restaurants. Improvements to the Stanley Walk area are also being made.

During the construction work visitors can still use a safe walking route through the town centre. For a full map of the regeneration and access to the town, see the Bracknell regeneration town map.

The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) are also supporting the regeneration.
