The market town of Raunds is situated in the heart of East Northamptonshire and enjoys easy access to all the major roads and motorways, including the A45 and A14 which link to the M6, M1, A1 and M11. Owing to the wide range of manufacturing and distribution businesses in the area, it is an increasingly-popular town for local workers and commuters alike.
The town enjoys a full range of shops and amenities including supermarkets, amedical centre, GP surgery, post office, schooling for all ages, restaurants and parks. The town square hosts a Friday market with regular stallholders selling fresh local produce.

The multi-million pound development of Rushden Lakes—a new and exciting retail, leisure and tourism destination — saw its first stores open in July 2017, with more shops, restaurants and a multi-screen cinema to follow.
