Ridgmont Station Heritage Centre
Sorry we are closed!
Because of the national Covid-19 lockdown the Heritage Centre, tea room and take away service are currently closed.
Volunteer and Group Visiting Opportunities
There are a number of volunteering opportunities available at the Ridgmont Station Heritage Centre – the gift shop and original Victorian booking office are staffed by volunteers, and visits by schools and groups arriving by train are especially welcome. Group travel discounts are also available.
If you would like further details of both volunteering and group visiting opportunities, please contact Stephen Sleight at BRCC on 01234 832645 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a variety of circular and linear walks starting from the Heritage Centre.

Why not come by train? Hourly (approx) train service on the Bedford to Bletchley Marston Vale Line running Monday to Saturday – take the train to Ridgmont, have tea and cake in the Tea Room, look around the gift shop and heritage centre (if open), and then return on the next train.
You can buy tickets on the train if your joining station is unstaffed.
(Note: there are currently no trains on Sundays – unless locally advertised for special event - for example Bedford River Festival).
Passengers with Bedfordshire concessionary bus passes may travel on the Marston Vale line at half fare. Parties of more than two adults can get reduced rate travel, ask about GroupSave.
Conveniently located just off J13 of the M1. The building has its own car park (height restriction 2.1m / 6′ 10″) on the opposite side of the railway line. Disabled parking is available outside the Heritage Centre.
Hop on the regular 34 Grant Palmer bus from Flitwick & Ampthill - it stops right outside the Heritage Centre!
