A Bit of Swiss in Bedfordshire

By Linda Tancs

A nine-acre garden with a hint of Swiss graces the heart of England’s Bedfordshire.  Located in Old Warden just outside Biggleswade beside an aviation museum, the 200-year-old garden is a recently restored gem of the Regency era.  Known as the Swiss Garden, it is, as the name implies, an alpine-inspired haven hailing a bygone era when the cognoscenti vacationed in the Swiss Alps.  The centerpiece is the thatched Swiss Cottage, complemented by other listed buildings as well as bridges, urns and arches.  A high terrace walk provides ample views of the renewed landscaping.  Enhance your visit with new interpretation and activity programs.  The garden is open daily.
