The Herts and Beds Group

Welcome to the Herts and Beds Group

This autonomous group, affiliated to the Southern & Eastern Branch, holds regular winter meetings, usually on the third Wednesday in the month. Meetings resume on 19th January 2022 at  a new venue, The Catherine Suite, in The Old Palace Lodge Hotel, Church Street, Dunstable LU5 4RT

The room will be available on the third Wednesday evening each month from 7.00pm until 10.30pm; access is directly inside the Hotel’s main entrance, then turn left.  The Herts & Beds Group holds meetings where disabled access and facilities are available for members and guests.

All guests interested in buses, coaches or road passenger transport are welcome – there’s no requirement to be a Member of The Omnibus Society, but a donation of £1 per head would be welcomed at each meeting, to cover ancillary costs.   

The Hotel is located on Church Street, Dunstable (A505), opposite the Priory Church about 200 metres east of the Church Street Lay-by stop for BusWay services A, B, C and Z and services 31, 70 and F77 to Luton.

Access for cars is from Kingsway – the adjacent side road on the Luton side of the Hotel – into car park alongside and behind the hotel.  If very busy, there is an overflow car park on the opposite side of Kingsway.  It is almost three miles from M1 Junction 11, or five miles north of M1 Junction 9
