Bedfordshire is the 14th most densely populated county of England with over half the population of the county living in the two largest built up areas, Bedford and Luton.
Bedfordshire is the home of a number of notable UK and international companies with either headquarters or major bases in the county. Autoglass, Boxclever and Charles Wells Pubs are all based in Bedford. The Kier Group and Kingspan Off-Site are based in Sandy and Jordans Cereals are based in Biggleswade. The Alexon Group, Blue Arrow, EasyJet, Monarch Airlines, Thomson Airways and Vauxhall Motors are all based in Luton for its close proximity to London Luton Airport.
A serviced office in Bedfordshire is well located for two of England's six main trunk roads, the A1 London to Edinburgh road and the A5 London to Holyhead road. In addition, the M1 motorway runs from London to Leeds. London Luton Airport has flights to many UK, European, Middle Eastern and North African destinations, operated largely by low-cost airlines.
