Bedford is an historic market town in South East England and a popular home for professionals who wish to work in London on account of its easy train links to the capital. In addition to its proximity to London, Bedford is an attractive place to live due to its setting beside the River Great Ouse, which provides respite from the stress of city life. Furthermore, house prices and other costs of living are comparatively low.
