HAS A CLUSTER OF JEWELS IN ITS CROWN: Bedford, a town with a rich and diverse history, boasts pockets of picturesque beauty.

ASPECTS OF BEDFORDSHIRE LIFE


A household name with a strong Bedfordshire heritage, Whitbread traces its long history back over 275 years.


• A BEDFORDSHIRE BREWERY


The Whitbread family’s Bedfordshire roots run deep with strong links to the villages of Cardington and Southill. Samuel Whitbread senior was born in Cardington in 1720. Drawing on an old and still evolving tradition, he was only 22 years old when, in 1742, he established the brewery which was to bear his name.
