Mini guide to Bedford


Bedford, the county town of Bedfordshire, is a pleasant riverside town that is popular among commuters who work in London, but enjoy a country lifestyle on the weekends. It boasts a long history dating back to Saxon times and its wonderful old buildings create a charming atmosphere.

Ceil Higgins Museum and Art Gallery is a beautiful Victorian mansion housing a fine selection of ceramics, glassware, watercolours and prints. The John Bunyan Museum documents the life of the famous author who wrote 'Pilgrims Progress' while serving time in Bedford Jail from 1660 to 1672. Bedford Museum documents the town's local history and is housed in a converted brewery.

The Embankment is an attractive place to stroll and has views of the river plus numerous historical buildings, while Bedford Park is also a relaxing spot. The Harpur Centre is home to 30 specialty shops and Bedford Market is held every Wednesday and Saturday along the riverbank. Woburn Abbey contains one of the most important private collections of artworks in the country.

Bedford is well regarded for its shopping and there is no shortage of pubs offering traditional food and entertainment, while a number of restaurants are also on offer.

Just west of town is Bronham Mill, a 17th century mill with demonstrations and various craft work for sale. Bushmead Priory is situated to the north of town and comprises 12th century ruins and intriguing wall paintings. Nearby Harrold is an attractive village featuring a 13th century church and bridge, while Old Warden is home to the Shuttleworth Collection of vintage and rare aeroplanes, cars, motorbikes and bicycles.
