Living and studying in Bedford

Bedford is a fantastic town to study and live in, it is creative, diverse, and artistic with lots going on. It is a great place to spend 3 years, or a lifetime and a town with a rich and vibrant creative and artistic sector. 

Bedford is highly regarded. The Sunday Times voted Bedford as one of the best places to live in the UK in 2019, calling the town unfairly underappreciated.

Bedford is less than an hour on the train into London, with beautiful countryside, Victorian architecture, the river, rich and diverse cuisine celebrating the many different communities living in Bedford and a whole host of cultural activities and organisations serving the town.
