Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Driving through the heart of Bedford, its hard to miss the mass of Saint Paul's Church, just over the bridge.
Dominates the local buildings.
Nice spot for a picnic outside.

There are records of a church on this site in Anglo-Saxon times although the present building although essentially medieval has Victorian accretions. It was, however, during the Second World War, when the BBC moved most of its operations to Bedford, that Trinity Chapel achieved international prominence as the venue for services broadcast around the war. Today as the Civic Church for the Borough of Bedford and the County of Bedfordshire it is a focus for special commemorations and celebrations. There are regular concerts on Tuesday lunchtimes as well as recitals on the organ which was refurbished as recently as 2010. I was impressed by some contemporary paintings almost abstract in feel commemorating the stations of the Cross.

This town centre church is a beautiful medieval gem, with an exceptional set of stained glass windows. The rood screen is superb, and the church is tidier than it used to be - well loved and well looked after.

I think I'm used to visiting cathedrals, but this is a nice church, it is just by the Bedford market held on a Wednesday so I had another option.

I like to visit old churches and with this being very close to the hotel, I spent an hour or two looking around. An excellent choice as there are some interesting things to see. Very good.

Bedford’s grandest and formerly medieval church presents very ornate and beautiful features throughout. The nave, chancel and intricately designed pulpit are all examples of this. Pleasantly surprised and enjoyed a brief chat with a volunteer who gave me advise about what to see in Bedford town. Very accommodating and informative.
