Bracknell town centre

Bracknell town centre is being transformed into an exciting, vibrant destination for the people of Bracknell Forest and the wider Thames Valley area. It is being developed in phases:

Phase 1

This completed in 2011 when a new £6m Waitrose store opened on Bond Way.

Phase 2

This completed on 7 September 2017, when the £240m The Lexicon opened.

Phase 3

As part of the next phase, the council is reviewing plans for the civic quarter, Market Square and the southern gateway. Plus, work is continuing to develop Princess Square and the area around the old Bentalls store, called The Deck.

The Lexicon

The Lexicon has created 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.

There are a number of stores at The Lexicon including a three-storey Fenwick department store, M&S and Primark. 

A 12-screen 4DX Cineworld can be found off Eagle Lane, which is also home to a number of family-friendly restaurants including Carluccio’s, Nando’s, Zizzi and Prezzo. Meanwhile Bill’s can be found off Braccan Walk and The Bull pub is on the High Street. 

Additionally, a number of new retailers are due to open in the coming weeks, including: Revital and TGI Fridays.
