Lovely park, great for both adults and children Plenty of space and very clean Lots to do and makes a great day out esp when the sun is out!
Priory Park – Bedford
You can walk all the way around the Marina with stunning views, not too far and have a nice cuppa and cake when arriving back at the cafe. Great for all the family including dogs.
The Higgins Museum – Bedford
You can learn about the geology and archaeolgy of Bedford and local areas and see fossils and ancient bones. The Somewhere in England gallery gives details of different industries and the title is because the BBC broadcast daily from St Paul’s Church during World War 2 and the broadcast was announced as Somewhere in England. There are a lot of photos and information about Great Bedfordians and a lot of Collections by local people. The Higgins was the house of the Higgins family who moved out in the early 1900s and was built next to their Castle Brewery. There are temporary exhibitions held as well.
The Panacea Museum Bedford
The museum is free with a donation box. It was a religious society founded in 1919 by Mablel Barltrop who lived in Bedford. The Museum is in Castleside which was their headquarters. In the 1920s and 30s there were 70 local members and 2000 in different parts of the World and people could apply for their healing waters. There is a pleasant garden where there is a cafe and you can visit the Founder’s House and a Chapel and wireless room. There are a lot of information boards and a video about the society and definitely worth a visit.

The Forest Centre Marston Vale
The Forest of Marston Vale is 61 square miles, and surrounded by the stunning countryside of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire – that’s a lot to explore! We put together some of our favourite routes for walkers, cyclists and horse riders as part of the Paths 4 Communities project (funded by the EU through Natural England)
The Forest obviously has loads of amazing green spaces, including 11 woodlands which are all free to access on foot/bike/horseback, 365 days a year but these routes are all based around the Forest Centre & Millennium Country Park.
The Embankment Bedford
This is such a pretty place to walk. The flowers out at the moment are amazing. Definitely worth a walk down. Very well maintained area with a constant array of swans and ducks. There are also one or two lovely places to eat and drink.
