WELCOME TO CASTLE QUAY WATERFRONT

         

This Spring The Light will be opening a 55,000 square foot entertainment space over three floors, which will include a premium 7 screen cinema, 10 lane bowl, retro arcade, a wide range of exciting leisure offers as well as a stunning terrace with restaurant and bar. The Light is a true reflection of the Council’s ambition to revive the canal-side and will anchor Waterfront’s leisure offer. The Waterfront will also include three further restaurants including Nando’s and PizzaExpress, which are set to open by early Summer, all of which will create an amazing new leisure destination in Banbury. Increased parking including increased EV parking space capacity (5%), and improved access have also been provided as part of the development including a new pedestrian bridge over the Oxford Canal.

The Council has also breathed new life into the centre’s former BHS store, investing in the creation of a unique food, retail and leisure destination called Lock29 that brings the community to the canal-side as well as increasing footfall to the town from visitors from all over the region. Global street food menus are delivered by the very best local traders sourcing ingredients as close to Banbury as possible. There is also a dedicated event and flexible cinema space where workshops, events, and activities for the community-run throughout the year. Please visit Lock29.co.uk for further information.

In August 2021 Premier Inn opened at Castle Quay Waterfront. This modern hotel has 117 rooms, including double, twin, family, and accessible rooms, as well as 20 enhanced Premier Plus bedrooms, plus a canal side Thyme Bar & Grill restaurant. The hotel fills a huge gap in the local market and visitor numbers have remained high since opening.
