Area guide: Bedford

Bedford is a town in Bedfordshire and towards the North of Luton. Surprisingly it has one of the largest concentrations of Italian immigrants in the UK and even has its own 'Little Italy' with an envious selection of pizza and pasta restaurants as well as been voted as having the 'UK's Best Ristretto' in 2011. It is the birthplace of British Military Fitness (BMF) which started in Bedford Park and is now in parks and sites all across the UK. On that note Bedford offers a broad range of sports facilities to the public in its parks, schools, leisure centres and community sites.
