Home to Luton Airport and Kenilworth Road Football Stadium (Luton FC), the Bedfordshire borough and town of Luton is situated approximately 50 km (30 miles) north-west of London, on the banks of the River Lea.
Boasting excellent shopping facilities, a plethora of restaurants & bars and a diversity of sports facilities, as well as a large, 11-screen cinema, Luton also has a thriving cultural & arts scene based around its Cultural Quarter.
Dating back as far as the 6th Century, the town’s long history can not only be explored in the Wardown Park Museum and the Stockwood Discovery Centre (Stockwood Park) but is more than evident in its wealth of historic architecture. The town is home to a total of 92 Grade I and Grade II* listed buildings and landmarks including, for example, the 12th Century St Mary’s Church, Luton Town Hall and the Luton War Memorial.
