Springtime in any garden seems to bring along its wonderful surprises, which have been so well hidden during winter, changing any garden into a magical display of nature’s glory. In the case of Bedford, spring seems to be at its earnest, reaching this district in late October. This makes it a wonderful opportunity for the avid gardener to view a splendid variety of flora, some unique to the region, as well as allowing you to peek into several of the well established private gardens which go on display annually.
The Gardens go on public show opening for the first time on Friday the 26th of October and again on Saturday the 27th from 08h00 till 18h00. Sunday will begin an hour later at 09h00 and then finally close to the public at 15h00.
The Country Fair which opens on Saturday the 27th at 10h00 will close at 18h00 and is sure to satisfy all the senses from scented home-made crafts and gifts to delightful culinary treats, to an assortment of well deserved refreshments and light meals. The young ones can look forward to a wonderful variety of things to keep them busy in the children’s playground, not forgetting the jumping castles. However should this all seem a bit too much for you why not spend your day on the evergreen golf course by entering the Bedford Golf Challenge!
