Bedfordshire is a county of eastern England. The county is bordered to the north-west with Northamptonshire, to the east by Cambridgeshire, to the south-east and south by Hertfordshire, to the south-west by Buckinghamshire and to the west with the borough of Milton Keynes which is part of Buckinghamshire. The land is flat and drained by the River Great Ouse and its tributaries. Only in the south-west it has an undulating and hilly terrain at the Chiltern Hills. This is where the land reaches its maximum height with 243 meters of Dunstable Downs. Shortly far are situated the towns of Dunstable and Luton. The county seat is the city of Bedford, located on the Great Ouse in the center of the county. Another important center in the south of the county is Leighton Buzzard on the Grand Union Canal. For the British people Christmas it is one of the most important holidays of the year. The Christmas markets are a rather recent tradition imported from Germany. Here is a list of the most popular Christmas markets in Bedfordshire.
