If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Bedford Museum

Embark on a fascinating journey through the human and natural history of North Bedfordshire, pausing briefly to glimpse at wonders from more distant lands. Go back in time to visit the delightful rural room sets and the Old School Museum, where Blackbeard's sword, 'Old Billy' the record breaking longest-lived horse and numerous other treasures and curiosities can be found. Housed in the former Higgins and Sons Brewery, Bedford Museum is situated within the gardens of bygone Bedford Castle, beside the great Ouse embankment. Changing programme of temporary exhibitions.
