Bedford’s Embankment Coming Into Bloom

With Spring starting to arrive in earnest, Bedford’s Embankment is starting to come into bloom providing a beautiful seasonal spectacle down the river.

Over 40,000 tulip bulbs were planted in the autumn along with bedding plants such as pansies, bellis and wallflowers.

With COVID-19 restrictions starting to ease and two households, or groups of up to six people from different households allowed to meet outdoors, the Embankment is a wonderful location for a walk with our friends, families and loved ones.

A Borough Council spokesperson said:

“We are incredibly proud of our beautiful Embankment, and our grounds team work really hard to create these wonderful floral displays.

“If you visit the Embankment to enjoy the display in the fresh air, please remember to stay apart from other households and keep your community safe.”
