Castles in Bedfordshire

Bedfordshire has fewer castles than other regions in England because of its positioning. Most of the surviving forts and castles in Bedfordshire are not well preserved or are in ruins.

The most famous fortifications and castles in Bedfordshire include the Bedford Castle (situated in Bedford), the Someries Castle located near Luton or the former Eastcotts Castle in the village with the same name.

Although Bedfordshire castles neither abound nor are spectacular, some of the castles have a long history dating back to the period immediately after the Norman invasion.
