Welcome to Bedford
Bedford & Beyond 2012
Whether it's high-octane thrills you're after or you're more interested in history and the arts, whether you want to entertain the family, or you simply want to kick back and enjoy quiet unspoilt countryside, come and visit Bedford & Beyond
Here in the county town of Bedford, one of England's smallest counties, flanked east and west by tourist hotspots like Oxford and Cambridge and just a 35 minute train ride from Central London, we believe you will have a visitor experience that is unique and whilst being full of the flavours from cultures around the world, is still quintessentially English. We hope this website provides you with all the information you need to start your visit and all the inspiration you need to stay for a while.
Make a stop at Bedford Tourist Information Centre where our friendly and knowledgable team of staff will help you make the most of your visit.
