Visiting

The Miraculous Relic Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe has its permanent home here in the cosmopolitan town of Bedford. The county town of Bedford is in one of England’s smallest counties, flanked east and west by Oxford and Cambridge and just a 35-minute train journey from central London.

Renowned as having one of the finest riverside settings in the country, with renowned panoramic views of the River Great Ouse from the restored Castle Mound; all that remains of Bedford castle, which was destroyed in the siege of 1224.

Visits of the Miraculous Relic Image to your parish can be arranged! Please speak to your parish priest first, and contact us by clicking ‘contact & booking’ and send us a message.

Please visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe here in the beautiful church of the Holy Child & St. Joseph. We are near Bedford train station and bus station. The Church is open every day in daylight hours.
