Pubs in Bedfordshire

Set amidst Bedfordshire’s gently rolling hills, ancient woodlands and heathland, and fertile plains dotted with pretty villages forgotten by time, are some of the most thrilling sporting activities you could dare to imagine.

Gently rolling hills, ancient woodlands and fertile plains are the most unexpected magnet for adrenaline junkies.

Let the adrenaline flow and experience bodyflying, flowboarding or waterskiing. Test-drive high performance vehicles, try powerboat racing, or take the controls of a microlight and soar far above the land.

Come back to earth and fly your kite on Dunstable Downs or watch a parade of historic aircraft in the skies at Shuttleworth. See priceless treasures at Woburn Abbey, or uncover secrets at a military intelligence museum. Visit a safari park or look for natterjack toads at RSPB Sandy nature reserve.

Woburn AbbeyTake a hike along Bedfordshire’s Greensand Ridge and see views familiar to Henry VIII, who frequently brought his court here to enjoy hunting as well as dealing with affairs of state. This sandstone with its distinctive greenish hue is the building material used for cottages and churches, so characteristic of the area.

After all this activity, you’ll be relieved to know there are historic coaching inns and picturesque country pubs where you can unwind with a glass or two of local ale and an excellent meal of locally sourced, seasonal produce, such as the Black Horse in Shefford.
