Did you know?

The University of Bedfordshire owns Putteridge Bury, a Victorian country house on the borders of Bedfordshire. Completed in 1911, it was built in the style of Chequers, the country home of the Prime Minister, and designed by architects Sir Ernest George and Alfred Yeats.

King George V often visited Putteridge Bury with the Prince of Wales. In fact, on 1 December 1926 the King planted an oak tree in the lawn to the south of the house.

Today it is used for conferences and events, including many of our summer graduation ceremonies.
