Things to do in Bedfordshire
The Shuttleworth Collection Bedfordshire

Our retirement homes in Bedfordshire are close to an impressive array of historic attractions. There’s the 18th century Woburn Abbey, home to the Duke and Duchess of Bedford; the 700-year-old remains of the Bushmead Priory, or the stately Wrest Park. You'll find the largest collection of horse-drawn carriages in Europe at the Stockwood Discovery Centre and over a hundred years of aviation history and aircraft at The Shuttleworth Collection. On the outskirts of the ultra-modern town of Milton Keynes you’ll find the atmospheric Victorian estate of Bletchley Park – famous for its World War II codebreakers.

Bedfordshire’s not all about history though. From the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to wildlife centres, like Harrold-Odell Country Park and Woburn Safari Park, you'll find plenty of natural wonders to enjoy around this beautiful county. That means there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy active retirement living in Bedfordshire. You can hike up the chalk hills of Dunstable Downs; explore 300 acres of lakes and woodland at the Green Flag-winning Priory Country Park or get involved with the community restoration projects around the Forest of Marston Vale and the Millennium Country Park. You'll find boating and water sports at the Wyboston Lakes Complex, as well as almost 30 golf courses and nearly 20 tennis clubs spread across the county. If you'd like to start a new adventure surrounded by green hills and vibrant towns, our retirement villages in Bedfordshire could be a great fit.
