Luton Guide

Are you thinking of moving to Luton and want to know more about this historic town? Well, there is a fair bit of history to cover as settlements dating back to 8,000 BC have been found in the Luton area, although the town of Luton proper did not formally exist until the 6th century AD. Luton is nowadays probably most famous for its airport, but it used to be one of the main centres of British hat manufacturing and then home to a large Vauxhall Motors factory; indeed, whilst the factory itself has closed, Vauxhall’s head office is still located in Luton and is a considerable source of local employment. The airport is home to the head offices of Easyjet and Monarch Airlines whilst Thomson UK also has its headquarters in the town.

Aside from London Luton airport, Luton has excellent transport links being next to the M1 Motorway and enjoying extensive rail links to London, the North and the South West; commuting into London St Pancras takes roughly 40 minutes. For those living and working in Luton public transport covers the entire area via frequent and comprehensive local bus services, operated by Arriva.

Luton has a vibrant shopping and nightlife scene, the main shops mostly embodied within ‘The Mall Luton’, a recently refurbished shopping centre which is home to all the big names as well as its own local Market area; the centre also hosts many leisure events. Eating out and nightlife in Luton is a cosmopolitan affair with a culturally diverse mixture of restaurants being available; the town is home to many pubs and clubs which cater for locals and the student population alike. The University of Bedfordshire’s Luton campus supports a growing student community, so students moving to Luton will find themselves a part of Luton’s student scene.

Annually Luton hosts the Luton International Carnival, the largest one-day carnival in Europe which plays host to vast crowds enjoying live music as a procession makes it ways through the town centre. Other attractions include nearby Stockwood Park which is home to the Mossman Carriage Collection, the most significant carriage vehicle museum in England. Other local museums include the ‘Hat Factory’ and Wardown Park Museum which focuses on the traditional crafts of the area. Slightly further out is Whipsnade, home to a zoo and Britain’s only ‘tree cathedral’, whilst the idyllic scenery of the Dunstable Downs and the Chiltern Hills are only a short drive away.
