Things to see and do in Bedford

If you’re looking to experience the history and culture of the town, then the Higgins Art Gallery and Museum, Bedford Castle and the Stockwood Discovery Centre are absolute musts. The John Bunyan Museum, Panacea Museum and Shire Hall are all in the heart of town too. 

The large Bedford Park and Hill Rise Local Nature Reserve are lovely green spaces just to the north of the centre, while Priory Country Park, Bedford River Valley Park and the 127-hectare Little Paxton Pits provide you with more lovely natural settings to enjoy some peace and quiet.


There are plenty of good schools in the area for your children, including Edward Road’s Cauldwell School and Great Denham Primary School. If you live on the outskirts of town in catchment areas such as Carlton and Sharnbrook, then you can send your little ones to primaries rated as outstanding by Ofsted. 

For older children, Bedford Girls’ School is among the cream of the crop when it comes to secondary schools, and centrally located on the south bank of the River Great Ouse. Bedford Modern School to the north west of the centre is up there too, along with Bedford School on De Parys Avenue, an independent boys’ school which looks after 7 to 18-year-olds.

Bedford transport links

Two major roads converge on Bedford - the A6 which heads north to Kettering and south to Luton and its airport, and the A421 which you can use to get to either the A1 or M1. The town has two train stations, as well as a network of bus and cycle routes.

The Bedford property scene

Bedford’s property market offers plenty of diversity for prospective buyers. Even within single neighbourhoods you’ll find homes to suit all tastes, such as Wixam’s lakeside Willow Grove where you can find everything from compact 2 bedroom apartments to vast 5 bed family homes with double detached garages. 

Whatever you need to suit your circumstances and budget, you can make your money go further when you select one of our great offers such as our Part Exchange scheme, which gives you a stress-free way of selling your current home with no fuss or estate agents’ fees to pay. 

Help to Buy Bedford

In Bedford you can take advantage of Help to Buy East of England if you are a first time buyer. Take a look at the Help to Buy East of England page to find out how the scheme works and how it can help you move.
