The Bedford Sunday Night SleepOver

2 days

Based at the 4* Georgian Swan Hotel in Bedford’s Cultural Quarter overlooking the Great Ouse, this two day break is a real treat for 2017. If you don’t know Bedford it will come as a very pleasant surprise. With an afternoon tea cruise exclusively for your group, a 3-course, 3-choice Sunday evening dinner and a cooked breakfast we suggest that you come hungry! And not just for food but also for knowledge too because on the Monday we have a really enjoyable day out for you in the company of one of our top notch Blue Badge Guides.

Arrive Sunday lunchtime and enjoy an exclusive two hour afternoon tea Ouse Cruise. For the rest of the day there’s time to enjoy the Roman style pool or maybe some will like to visit the free Cecil Higgins Museum & Gallery which is immediately behind the hotel. The collection includes beautiful paintings, ceramics and glass. Then time to relax and freshen up before a three course, three choice dinner with coffee is served at the handsome hotel.

On Monday morning, after a cooked breakfast, the Blue Badge guide arrives to take you for a day of clangers and cults with a dash of clematis or code breaking thrown in! We begin with a short stroll through the compact heart of Bedford uncovering the links to Glenn Miller, Bob Hope & Bing Crosby and visit the very quirky museum of a now defunct cult of middle class ladies who took tea on the lawn certain in their belief that the Messiah was coming back to live in a terraced Bedford house. Yes really!

In the afternoon we visit Bletchley Park home of the World War Two Code Breakers - Winners of the Best Attraction for Groups in both the 2015 and 2016 Group Travel Awards or Kathy Brown’s Garden. Judge’s wife Kathy is the Delia Smith of container gardening and she’s no slouch at clematis either with over 90 species in a garden that also has special garden rooms planted to recreate famous paintings! The garden visit includes tea & cake. Head for home at 5.00pm.
