Town Bridge

Whether you like high-octane thrills or you're interested in history and the arts, if you want to entertain the family, or simply want to relax and enjoy quiet, unspoilt countryside, come and visit Bedford and north Bedfordshire.

The county town of Bedford is in one of England's smallest counties, flanked east and west by tourist hotspots like Oxford and Cambridge and just a 35 minute train journey from central London.

Renowned as having one of the finest riverside settings in the country, enjoy panoramic views of the River Great Ouse from the restored Castle Mound; all that remains of Bedford castle, which was destroyed in the siege of 1224.
