It’s easy to get to

Have you always considered Luton just a little bit too far away to drive? If that’s the case, that needn’t be your worry anymore. Getting there couldn’t easier, especially with regular trains to Luton from the likes of London running throughout the day. Ensure that you’ve booked your tickets in advance, and all you’ll have to do when you arrive at the train station is pick them up from the machine, before hopping on the train. This way, you won’t have to worry about where to park when you get there either.  

Tire the kids out

School holidays approaching and need to take the kids somewhere to tire them out? Thanks to the likes of its 100-hectare park, Luton can offer just that. Stockwood Park is perfect for when the whole family are in the mood for some fresh air. After a long walk, you can also stop by the Stockwood Discovery Centre, which is a museum in the stables of Stockwood Park. There, you can all discover local history and Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Medieval artefacts.

Enjoy great entertainment

Presenting theatre, music and comedy, the Luton Library Theatre is a firm favourite, and has been part of Luton life since 1962. If you’re heading there with your partner, grab a G&T before you go in. With shows including ‘The Tempest’ by William Shakespeare and ‘The Wind in the Willows: A Folk Opera’, there is something to suit everyone.

Go shopping

After you have finished playing, you and your friends can stop by the Clubhouse and enjoy some refreshments as you relax on the balcony overlooking the green.
