Most popular holiday deals in Luton
Luton is situated just north of London, but its quiet rows of brick houses and dozens of grandiose public buildings make it feel a world away from the smog and stress of the capital. The location of a prominent town from as far back as the 6th century, Luton holidays are a unique chance to experience the best of England's history alongside the best of its multicultural present, with one of the most ethnically diverse populations of any city in the UK.
Planning Luton Holidays
Luton is known throughout the world for its busy international airport, making it accessible from almost anywhere. However, given its central location there are also excellent train, road and bus links with the rest of the UK - especially London, only half an hour away. Given that most of Luton's attractions are not as weather-dependent as other destinations, Luton holidays can be enjoyed any time of the year, and a wide range of hotels, bed and breakfasts and other accommodation options are always ready to welcome holiday-makers.
Luton holidays provide an opportunity to delve into Luton's long history as a prominent manufacturing centre - Luton is especially known for its history of hat-making (hence the local football team's name, 'The Hatters'), and a visit to Luton's Hat Factory is a fun way to interact with this past.
As well as hat-making, Luton is also well-known as a thriving multicultural community, with large minority groups who have all left their mark on the local food scene, which is best experienced among the food stalls around the Arndale shopping centre. If you're wanting something a bit more lively on your Luton holidays, then the Luton Festival is an unforgettable one-day whirlwind that is certainly among the most colourful in Europe.
