Explore a town that's packed with history

From the 800-year-old St. Mary's Church to the modern hat-making and automotive industries, there's plenty to admire and learn around the town.

You can visit the Wardown Park Museum, a collection of military and textile items housed in a Victorian mansion, or take a tour of the Stockwood Discovery Centre, the home of the largest horse-drawn carriage collection in the UK.

A little further out from the centre, you can visit the Paris-inspired country house at Wrest Park, or see the ruins of the 15th-century Someries Castle near Hyde.

Retire to an area full of nature and wildlife

Just a few miles out from Luton, you'll enter the Chiltern Hills, a 300-square-mile Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that stretches all the way from Oxfordshire to Hertfordshire.

You'll find expansive views from the highest point in the county in Dunstable Downs, thousands of animals at the massive Whipsnade Zoo, as well as a number of charming hamlets and villages dotted throughout the area.

There are also around 400 County Wildlife Sites spread around the county, with almost twenty of them around Luton itself. You can see more than twenty species of butterfly at Galley and Warden Hills, foxes and deer at Bradger's Hill, or intriguing wildflowers at Dallow Downs.
