Living in Ampthill
Ampthill has quite a royal history - it was once one of King Henry VIII's favourite towns and the home of Catherine of Aragon for a few years. In 1242, Henry III passed a law for Ampthill to hold a weekly market, which is still going today - the perfect place for picking up fresh produce and knick-knacks. While the famous 15th-century Ampthill Castle is unfortunately no longer here, you can still visit the remaining ponds and Ampthill Park, which now stands on the old grounds. The park features work from the renowned landscaper Lancelot 'Capability' Brown and the grand Ampthill Park House, built in 1686.
If you'd like to get more involved in Ampthill's lively community, there are a number of leisure clubs you can join, offering a range of sports from tennis to bowls.
