Monday Group

We had our first outing today to Bedford on the X5. The weather was to say the least disappointing, we found
that all the museums in Bedford are closed from October onwards and worse they only open from Tuesday
to Saturday! However we enjoyed a nice lunch at Papa John’s Spaghetti house with Teresa and Arthur.


Bedford Castle

We have visited Oxford – The natural history Museum and the Ashmolean on two separate occasions, and Aylesbury – the Museum and Church followed by lunch at the King’s Head a NT property, lots of interesting beers and nice food.
