The Area

Many guests staying at the Bexley Bed and Breakfast arrive without a car. After a short 10 minute ride from the airport, it’s often easy to adopt a pedestrian lifestyle and walk to restaurants, events, and other attractions throughout Bexley. If you don’t want to drive, you can contact the BEAT (a small charter service) at Uber, taxis, and Car-2-Go are also conveniently available.
