Hotels in Bedfordshire
Bedfordshire is a county in eastern England; its capital is the town of Bedford. Bedfordshire sights in the town of Bedford include St. Pauls Church, constructed in the 13th century, the Cecil Higgins Art Gallery, and the Bedford Museum, illustrating local history and Bedfordshire culture. Bedford isn't the only town to explore while visiting Bedfordshire, though. Head to the town of Ampthill to check out its characteristic historical center, with watch tower, and get some local Bedfordshire shopping done. In the town of Dunstable, you can admire the Dunstable Priory Church of St. Peter, where Henry VIII divorced Catherine of Aragon, the Whipsnade Zoo, and the very characteristic Whipsnade Tree Cathedral, a garden planted in the shape of a cathedral where services by various denominations have been held. A large part of Bedfordshire tourism is focused on the Chiltern Hills, a chalk escarpment, part of which has been declared as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hiking, picnicking and bird watching in the area, as well as hang gliding and paragliding.
