One historic house towers (metaphorically) over all others in Bedfordshire. Woburn Abbey is one of the nation's great treasure houses, and it justifiable draws a huge number of visitors every year. Luton Hoo could justifiably claim to rival Woburn, at least before it was turned into a luxury hotel. If you want to avoid the crowds of Woburn, why not opt for a visit to Wrest Park, with its formal gardens. Or see the ruins of Houghton House, thought to be the model for John Bunyan's House Beautiful.
