Located 30 miles north from the centre of London, Luton is the ideal place for many commuters to call home. Although the area lacks a lot of the stores and entertainment options which are available in the heart of London, there is more than enough for the local economy to thrive on. Luton is easily one of the more popular commuter destinations for those working in the centre and northern half of the city but there is still enough going on to attract people’s interest.

The main employment opportunities in Luton have changed over the centuries and decades but at the moment, the presence of Luton Airport is a major factor in the local economy. The days of relying on hat-making firms and then car and van manufacturers to underpin the local economy are gone but with Luton Airport remaining one of the busiest airports in the United Kingdom, the importance of the airline industry to the local economy cannot be overstated. We provide a wide range of Luton taxis services for clients which operates 24 hours a day.

The Luton Carnival is a huge annual event

One of the main entertainment options in Luton is the Luton Carnival, which is said to the biggest one-day carnival which takes place in Europe. The Luton Carnival is traditionally held on the latter of the May Day Bank Holidays and it is common for crowds of 150,000 to attend this annual event. There are numerous musical stalls and stages located around the town centre to line the procession and there are many places to eat and drink. Other carnivals in the UK may gain more national and international prominence but the Luton carnival plays host to huge amounts of people every year, making it a fantastic choice for locals and touring guests. Luton also plays host well organised events for the St Patricks Day celebrations in March.

There are a number of parks in Luton where people can relax or engage in sporting activity. Wardown Park is one of the most notable parks in Luton and it can be found situated on the River Lea. There are a number of gardens in the park, there are facilities for sporting activities and there is also the Wardown Park Museum. The park can be easily reached by walking from the town centre and can be found in between Old Bedford Road and New Bedford Road.

Another park of note in the Luton area is Stockwood Park, which houses the Stockwood Discovery Centre. This museum, which is free to enter, hosts many interesting elements and information about the history and development of Luton. The park also hosts a number of sporting attractions including rugby pitches, a golf course and a running track. Stockwood Park can be found close to Junction 10 of the M1.

If you just thought Luton was about Luton Airport, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that there is a lot more on offer in the region that just the airport.
