Bedfordshire

Bedfordshire is bounded by the counties of Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. Rolling pasture-lands, sandstone ridges and low hills form much of Bedfordshire's landscape, which is dominated by the River Great Ouse as well as the Chiltern Hills, which lie further south.

The historical county town, Bedford is noted for its churches, which date back to Saxon and Norman times. It is also renowned for being the home of John Bunyan from 1655 until his death in 1688. Reminders of his time there include the statue at St Peter's Green and the John Bunyan Library in Harpur street.

Much of Bedfordshire is unspoilt and rural. Typical English villages such as Ickwell Green, with thatched roofs and stone spires, can be found scattered around the region's North, while towns such as Eaton Socon and Clifton offer fascinating reminders of the region's past and epitomise the charm of this ceremonial county, with an array of thatched cottages and 13th century public houses, such as the White Horse.

Worburn Park tiger Other places of interest include Woburn Abbey with its 3000 acre deer park and the award-winning Woburn Park. The latter, which was founded in the early 20th century by the 11th Duke of Bedford, is home to a rich array of exotic wildlife such as lions, tigers and monkeys. It is one of the most popular tourist destination in the county.
