  • 1. Travel Guide BEDFORDSHIRE HUNGRY FOR MORE INFO AFTER WATCHING THIS? GO TO http://agptech.50webs.com/bedford_5.html FOR LINKS!
  • 2. Introduction  Bedfordshire is a county with a near proximity to London.  Because of this, Bedfordshire is often dubbed as, “commuter country.”  However, Bedfordshire has loads of attractions for people to visit. From Historical Sites, to Gardens, to Animal Parks!  Because of Bedfordshire’s transport links, it’s really easy to get around! And with Luton airport situated within the county, it’s also great for visitors from all around Europe.
  • 3. Top Five Attractions: WOBURN ABBEY  Woburn Abbey has been owned by the Russell family since 1547. During this time, the old Abbey buildings were made into a house.  Over the years, the improvements the family made have transformed the Abbey into one of the finest historic stately homes in the UK.  The current house now boasts collections of silver, ceramics, paintings and furniture.  It doesn’t stop inside the house! There are also some extensive gardens around the Abbey. There are around 3,000 acres of gardens, mainly Victorian in their character, including a deer park, ponds, maze and even a Chinese dairy!
  • 4. Top Five Attractions: SHUTTLEWORTH COLLECTION  Old Warden Park is owned by the Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth Remembrance Trust.  Richard Shuttleworth inherited the Old Warden Estate on his 23rd birthday and took a keen interest in farming and estate management as well as in motor racing and aviation.  He was killed flying in 1940 at the age of 31.  Four years later his mother, Dorothy Shuttleworth, founded the Trust as a permanent memorial to him.
  • 5. Top Five Attractions: MONSTER EVENT CENTRE  Here you will find an unrivalled opportunity to experience driving & riding in a full size monster truck, 4x4 off road driving for both adults & teenagers, 4x4 rides and quad biking for all the family.  All of their off road driving events are available as activity gift vouchers for that special occasion.  Although this centre sounds very child unfriendly, children as young as three can visit and have a go on the radio controlled monster trucks!
  • 6. Top Five Attractions: DANISH CAMP  Enjoy a visit to the countryside... there's history, wildlife, walks, a cycle track, cycle hire and a Norwegian log cabin, serving food and refreshments all day long.  If you have time constraints it is not the best place to visit. The restaurant is not a fast-food outlet. All food is cooked to order.  However you can enjoy a drink in the tranquil surroundings of Danish Camp while you wait for your order to be prepared. It does give you an opportunity to relax before your meal!
  • 7. Top Five Attractions: WHIPSNADE TREE CATHEDRAL  Trees and hedges planted in the form of a medieval cathedral.  Created following the First World War in ‘Faith, hope and reconciliation’, the Tree Cathedral covers a tranquil 3.82ha (9½ acres) and contains many tree species.  Grass avenues form chancel, nave, transepts, chapels and cloisters, and there is also a dew pond.
  • 8. To wrap it up . . .  I hope I have been able to show you that Bedfordshire is much more than just “commuter country.”  The great thing about Bedfordshire is the great mix between great transport links, beautiful scenery, and historic masterpieces.  If that doesn’t agree with your idea of fun, why not try using the countryside to fulfil your adrenaline filled mind at the Monster Event Centre.
