The charming town of Ampthill has a wealth of history. Between Bedford and Luton, Ampthill is a wonderfully quiet area that is full of independent retailers and family owned businesses. It has an incredibly strong community feel with all kinds of public groups and clubs for the locals to attend.
With convenient train links only 5 minutes down the road, Ampthill is easily accessible no matter how you choose to get there.
There are all kinds of local attractions nearby. Woburn Safari Park is only 5 miles away, and Centre Parks is less than 3 miles. You'll find Woburn Abbey Deer Park close by too, one of Europe's largest private conservation parks, which plays host to a diverse and vibrant variety of wildlife.
The town also has many royal links. Ampthill has played host to a weekly market, initially granted by King Henry III all the way back in 1219 - in 2019, they celebrated 800 years.
Henry VIII also famously frequented Bedfordshire to visit his wife, Catherine of Aragon who resided at Ampthill Castle. He would hunt in the surrounding grounds - these grounds went on to become Ampthill Park, where there is now a cross erected in memory of the former royal guests.
The Masquerade is a 1970's picture book written by Kit Williams. The book famously sparked a national treasure hunt, ending in the discovery of a 'golden hare' in Ampthill Park.
The book sold over 2 million copies, where clues in the illustrations would eventually reveal a message, telling the reader to look under Catherine of Aragon's cross. This was an exceptionally hard clue, however, and it took over 3 years before the golden hare was discovered.
