The property is situated in a prominent trading position on the pedestrianised Wide Bargate where it meets Strait Bargate. Strait Bargate is the principal pedestriansed section of Boston town centre. Pescod Square Shopping Centre is immediately to the rear of the subject property and the entrance is adjacent to the property. Other retailers in the immediate vicinity include Specsavers, Waterstones, WH Smith and Oldrids Department Store. Pescod Square Shopping Centre is anchored by Wilkinson, Peacocks and various other multiple retailers such as Next, Superdrug and Costa Coffee.
