Bedford has plenty up its sleeve to tempt visitors. Here are some reasons why you should go...


Arranging car hire in Bedford couldn't be easier. Use the TravelSupermarket search tool to find a great deal and then simply pick up your vehicle from downtown locations before hitting the road.

Situated within the commuter belt, the town of Bedford has much to offer visitors. If you're hoping to indulge in a little history during your visit, the Higgins Art Gallery and Museum, the Eagle Gallery and the Panacea Museum are just a handful of the town's offerings.

Other highlights include Bedford Castle Mound, which is all that remains of the town's castle. It has been redesigned and now includes an archaeological park, a lime kiln vault and restaurants.

The Embankment is a great place to go and relax. A mile long, it runs along the banks of the river and through the town centre and is filled with pretty gardens. The town's war memorial is also located here.

Similarly, Bedford Park is the place to head when you want some time out. Dating back to the Victorian era, it has a bandstand, cricket pavilion and outdoor swimming pool.

The town has a large Italian community and as such, you won't go short of great eateries to feast in in the evening. Boasting a large number of Italian restaurants, cafes and bars, you'll be spoilt for choice.
