There’s everything you need in terms of amenities, as there’s a plethora of chain and independent shops across Bedford’s high streets and three shopping arcades. This is alongside the equally impressive choice of bars, restaurants and cafes – plus those of you with children have a range of great schools to choose from. What’s more, there’s a bustling nightlife and a number of culturally significant sites including art galleries, museums and libraries and top entertainment venues like the Corn Exchange and the Quarry Theatre.
As the town dates back to the 9th century it is brimming with historical sights and attractions. Just a few examples include the ruins of Bedford Castle, St Paul’s Church and many impressive buildings showcasing the best in Victorian and Edwardian architecture.
There’s plenty of green space and parkland around Bedford too, including Bedford Park and Priory Country Park – both of which are ideal for quiet walks, jogging or simply getting some fresh air. On top of this, you can also take a stroll along the embankment of the River Great Ouse, which winds its way through the town. Or, for something a little more adventurous, you can take to the water with one of Bedford’s many canoeing, kayaking and rowing clubs.

Thanks to the excellent transport links, you can quickly get around the area and head further afield from our new homes in Bedford.
