72 SEATER Coach Hire - St Albans Coach Hire
Make history lessons come to life by using St Albans Coach hire to take your students to the city of Bedford. Located in north Bedfordshire, south-central England, Bedford is a pleasant riverside town featuring a variety of attractions and is ideally located for history, leisure, the arts, culture and quiet unspoiled countryside.
Historically, the town was a Roman fording station over the River Ouse. In AD 571 the Saxons fought a great battle there against the native Britons, and in 1010 the Danes sacked the town. A mound in the municipal gardens is all that is left of the Norman castle that defended the ford until its destruction in 1224.
Bedford’s collection of museums and galleries are extensive and boast some excellent exhibits. The Cecil Higgins Art Gallery contains watercolours by J. M. W. Turner, while Bedford Museum has a wonderful display of the human history of the region from prehistoric times. The life of John Bunyan is linked to several of the town’s attractions, including St Peter’s Church, Abbey Church of St Mary and St Helena Elstow, Elstow Moot Hall, and the John Bunyan Museum. No matter where you choose to take the students, you can be sure that the driver of your St Albans Coach Hire will be standing by to take everyone back to school at the end of the trip.
