|Bedford wouldn’t be quite the same without its centrepiece river, the Great Ouse. It divides the town in two and offers ample opportunities for pleasant strolling and outdoor activities. – Daniel|

|If it’s a sunny day, consider starting at the Riverside North Bridge and heading east along the river. It’s a pleasant 45-minute walk until you get to the cinema complex, and you can always stop along the way for an ice cream!|
|There is plenty of picnic space along the river, so pack up some food and head out. And if it rains – as it often does – just look for one of the handy bandstands that are dotted about.|
|As picturesque as the river may be, it’s not recommended to swim in it. Bodies do get found on occasion, while trolleys also get dumped here with a little more regularity. You should probably not also walk along the river at night, especially alone.|
