It's far enough from London to find proper countryside, but still near enough for day trips to the city via one of the many excellent rail links. Visit the magnificent ducal home of the Duke of Bedford at Woburn Abbey, where you'll find plenty of activities for all the family. Go for a stroll and a pub lunch in one of Bedfordshire's many attractive sleepy little villages, such as Olney, where an annual Pancake Day race is run or Stewkley, whose church, St. Michael's, is still mostly of Norman architecture. Although not necessarily considered a tourist destination, Milton Keynes offers an excellent theatre, great concerts, top sporting events and the intriguing Bletchley Park Museum, the top-secret home of World War II code breakers and a fascinating experience for young and old to enjoy.

Bedfordshire is the home of John Bunyan, a Roundhead in the 17th century Civil War and writer of the famous book Pilgrim's Progress, during a stay in prison. The county shares boundaries with four other counties and provides numerous walking areas, which will take you to many museums, showing the history of this busy inland county. The reasonably modern history of the Air Force can be studied at the Shuttleworth Air Museum, where 'the stringbags' and other vintage fighter planes still fly or are observed.
