Bedfordshire is imbued with history as some of the most notable English people have ties to the place, such as Queen Eleanor who was buried in Dunstable. It is said that the county served as a refuge for many heads of Europe during The Second World War and Sir Winston Churchill delivered an inspiring speech at The Luton Hoo. Bedfordshire is a ceremonial county that lies in the East of England. Luton, Central Bedfordshire and Bedford make up the three unitary authorities of the county. The southern end of Bedfordshire is in the Chiltern Hills, which is one attraction that you must include in your tours. With its relatively dry climate, the county provides an excellent environment for sightseeing, whether you are a local or a visitor. The Great Ouse and its tributaries are part of the county as well, and that offers opportunities for outdoor and water hobbies from kayaking to fishing. With a car, you have the freedom to plan your trip across the county however you see fit.
