Move to Bedford

Bedford is central - that’s why people love living here

Many people and families are drawn to Bedford by its reputation for education, good value houses and quality of life. 35 minutes north of Central London, Bedford Borough is close enough to the capital to attract commuters but far enough away to be neither too expensive nor too crowded.

Bedford is a great place to call home... take a look at what we’ve got to offer!

We have a number of PDF brochures available to download: professional, graduate/young people, teachers
