The Jewel In The Crown is the theme for this weekend’s guided walk, led by the Bedford Association of Tour Guides.
Bedford’s Embankment is the area by which the town is best known and instantly recognisable, and the river here is crossed by a number of bridges, one pictured.
Discover more about this area and other features on Sunday, July 26, when the walk leaves the Old Town Hall, St Paul’s Square at 11am. Booking is essential with the Travel and Tourist Information Centre on 01234 718112. The cost is £3 for adults with reductions for children.
