Bedfordshire, England, is a county in the east of England in the United Kingdom and is flanked by the counties of Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hertfordshire. Most of Bedfordshire’s residents call the areas of Luton or Bedford home. However, there are various other towns within Bedfordshire that are worth exploring, such as Biggleswade, Dunstable, Sandy, Ampthill, Shefford, Woburn, Willstead, Billington, and Marston Moretaine.

For international tourists, Bedfordshire, England, is most well known for being the county in which Luton is situated. Many international flights arrive at Luton Airport when people are aiming to get to London cheaply.

While there are a couple of Bedfordshire, England hostels scattered around, the overwhelming majority of hostels in England are located in London.
