Anything to do near Bedford

Hi, I'm at a wedding on Saturday the 7/12 at Bedford and the Wife & I are staying for 3 nights at St Neots Premier Inn so we can see the area & sites but it seems there's nothing around there other than Woburn Gardens & we've been to Cambridge last year, so any ideas, we like historical things, Gardens & walks etc & don't mind an hours drive out, Thanks in advance.

Shuttleworth is lovely. I can recommend the Swiss Gardens and also the walk around the lake there. Old Warden itself is a charming village with a foodie pub, the Hare and Hounds.

Grafham Water is a 10 mile walk round a reservoir, just up the A1.

Also, Huntingdon might be worth a visit. Cromwell country.

Whipsnade Zoo?

The market town of Sandy (a couple of miles from the Shuttleworth museum) is home to the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds).

Not sure if it's open when you will be there or even if you are interested in birdwatching but worth a shot.....

We live quite near to Wimpole Hall the National Trust property near Royston which is quite picturesque. Pizza Palazzo for lunch afterwards in Royston is worth a trip but book first to avoid disappointment. Enjoy the wedding!

RSPB HQ is located outside of Sandy, and will be open. A nice walk, too. Sandy's not much of a market town these days though.
