The temperatures are rising and the summer holidays are looming – but with airports up and down the country experiencing disruption, you may not want to risk travelling abroad.
Luckily, you don’t have to – because there are plenty of great attractions right here on our doorstep in Bedfordshire.
So let’s have a look at what’s on offer...
1. Land Rover Experience, Luton Hoo
One for the thrill seekers! Based on the Luton Hoo country estate, the experience features 5km of obstacle-filled track. Guests can combine off-road

3. Bedford Cat Cafe
If you're a cat person (and honestly why wouldn't you be?), this one is purr-fect for you. Have a drink, a delicious bite to eat, and snuggle with one of the adorable rescue cats from boss-cat Steve who will shout for cuddles to the gorgeous three-legged Utange. You can even enjoy a fancy afternoon tea!

A pint in a beer garden is the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. Good food, good service, and if you're a fan of 80s hits, great music too! Pop down on Sunday and try to roast.
