Plan a Great Day Out

If you are looking for things to do in the area, less than two miles away, in the pretty village of Silsoe, lies Wrest Park. Previously home to the De Grey family, with dazzling parterres and fragrant borders, sweeping views and woodland walks, it's a real treat for the senses. Once you've explored some of its 90 acres and 300 years of garden history, treat yourself to something tasty at the café, learn more about Wrest at War in the exhibition, or let the kids run off some steam in the playground.
