There is a lot of information to take in and a great deal to organise to get settled into your accommodation and the local area in your first week at Cranfield. 

To help, we have organised some trips to the vibrant new city of Milton Keynes and the historic market town of Bedford - popular for a range of shopping and leisure facilities.

Please do not arrive for your tour without pre-registering as we cannot guarantee a space will be available on the day.
