The Embankment and Mill Meadows
The Embankment, which runs alongside the River Great Ouse is one of Bedford’s most picturesque settings, due to the riverside views and dazzling floral bedding displays.
The beautiful tree-lined promenade, ornate bridges and Victorian bandstand provide the perfect space to sit, relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
The area hosts a range of popular events throughout the summer months, including long-standing regattas, festivals and big band concerts.
