Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Bedford Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Bedford, NS discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Bedford hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Bedford has a long history stretching back thousands of years before white settlement. Today tourists can admire the artworks the Mi'kmaq First Nation people left behind at the Bedford Petroglyphs National Historic Site. British settlers began arriving in Bedford and nearby towns in the mid-18th century. They faced resistance from indigenous tribes and built Fort Sackville to protect their new home. The area came to be known as Sackville, after the fort, until the mid-19th century when it became Bedford. The name pays tribute to John Russell, the 4th Duke of Bedford, the new colonies' first Secretary of State.

Bedford was an independent town until 1996, when it was recognized as part of Halifax. Despite the change, Bedford retains its own personality that delights travelers. You'll find Bedford at the northwest end of the Bedford Basin. It's ideally located for road trippers near Nova Scotia Highway 102 and the Bedford Bypass.

When should you visit Bedford, NS?

Pleasantly warm weather and many local festivals make May to October the ideal time for visiting Bedford. These perfect conditions attract many tourists though, so make sure you plan your trip well in advance. While Bedford doesn't experience the same tourist numbers of Halifax, local hotels still book quickly. You're also likely to spend a little more on your accommodation during the peak season. However, with average top temperatures ranging from the mid-50s to mid-70s, depending on the time you visit, travelers insist it's worth the price.

If you'd rather avoid the crowds and inflated accommodation costs, try Bedford in November to February. Daily highs range from the mid-40s in November to high 20s in February, but it can feel much colder when the winds set in. However, dressing in layers should keep the cold at bay. You can enjoy the icy conditions at Nova Scotia's ski slopes. March and April are slightly warmer, but relentless springtime rain typically keeps tourists away.
