Bedford was the birthplace and home of one of the world's greatest authors - John Bunyan.
Bunyan took part in the Civil War on the Parliamentary side and was stationed at nearby Newport Pagnell. He became famous as a prisoner of conscience and as a Dissenting preacher who helped bring about greater religious freedom in England.
His best-known book The Pilgrim's Progress was, for over 300 years, the second biggest selling publication in the world - and is still at No. 3.
So Bedford is rightly proud of him.
We welcome visitors from all over the world, who come to see the places where Bunyan was born, lived, was inspired and where he preached and wrote.
This website aims:
To inform people about John Bunyan and his works.
To suggest interesting places, in Bedford and the surrounding County, that you might like to visit.
