Together with Russell Park, this bridge and the embankment make for a lovely circular walk immersed in wildlife and with lovely views of the Edwardian buildings on the edge of the gardens. A pleasant was to spend a leisurely hour or two.

Walk the park and Bedford unwind in front of your eyes; feel the wind in your hair and wander at the ducks, sometimes playing or somtimes just gliding smoothly, across the water.

Bedford river, or Ouse, flows peacefully through Bedford centre, wildlife abounds with water birds, ducks, swans. Beautiful bridges cross the river as rowers glide past, very convenient to access the town centre.

Attractive stone bridge taking the A6 to the south of the town. Lots of swans, ducks and rowers. The river is slow here which makes it all the more relaxing in spite of the traffic- good views on both sides with easy access to walks...More
