Latest Luton parking reviews
Very easy to find, easy access and very close to the hospital. Would definitely recommend and use againRebecca
Easy to find and space clearly marked on the driveway on this very neat bungalow. I booked the space as I had an appointment at the nearby Luton and Dunstable Hospital, where parking is extremely limited, costly and trying to park there is a nightmare. Poets Green is a comfortable 8 minutes walk away from the hospital, making it a very cost effective and ideal parking option. The owner also texted me afterwards to make sure i was satisfied, which was a nice personal touch. I will be booking the space again shortly when I return to the hospital in a few weeks.Martin
Very welcoming lady and great location for the hospitalMatthew
Perfect parking space if you need to jump on the train at Leagrave Station. Literally a minute round the corner and nicely nestled away. Thanks so much!Lauren
Highly recommend as a parking location if visiting Luton & Dunstable Hospital. About a 1/2 mile walk. At the time I parked there were an adequate number of vacant spaces. No problem finding the location.Nigel
Easy to find, much better and less stressful than trying to find a space to park at L&D for a hospital appointment. Also avoids the traffic on Dunstable Road and jams outside the hospital main entrance. Only five minutes easy stroll/Liz
