why Luton?

 

1. It’s interesting...

Luton has a vast history and cultural gems can be found throughout the town and countryside. The Queen and Prince Philip even spent part of their honeymoon at Luton Hoo, at the time owned by the granddaughter of Czar Nicholas 1 of Russia. The hat-making industry made Luton one of the most affluent places to reside (especially during The 1930's Great Depression), with their hats travelling worldwide!

For an educational day out, check out Wardown Park museum and learn all about the development of Luton industries and marvel at the ever changing hat and lace collection.

2. It’s beautiful…

Luton is just 30 minutes away from London yet surrounded by the beautiful English countryside. For a day away from the hustle and bustle, check out Wrest Park  and explore three centuries of landscape design. From woodland walks, to country manors, to the (all-important!) tea room, Wrest Park is a lovely day out for the whole family!

3. It's good for shopping…

With an attractive pedestrian area in George Street, and one of the first indoor shopping centres in the country atThe Mall. Luton is a shopper’s paradise! From high street brands to independent boutiques, to the Norman discovered Luton market, this city really does have something for everyone.

4. It's entertaining...

Luton has a vast arrange of pubs, bars and clubs. For a bit of something different, head to the aptly named ‘The Hat Factory’, a cutting edge arts venue brimming with drama, dance, music and comedy productions.
