Bedfordshire  is a county in England that forms part of the East of England region. Its county town is Bedford. It borders Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire (with the Borough of Milton Keynes) and Hertfordshire. The county motto is "Constant Be", which is taken from the hymn To Be A Pilgrim by John Bunyan. As part of a 2002 marketing campaign, the plant conservation charity Plantlife chose the Bee Orchid as the county flower. The traditional nickname for people from Bedfordshire is "Bedfordshire Bulldogs" or "Clangers", this last deriving from the popular local dish comprising a suet crust dumpling filled with meat or jam or both.

These areas are also encompassed in this county for kids days out:
