Rent a Luton Parking Space
Luton is one of the United Kingdom’s most populous towns without city status. Located in Bedfordshire, on the River Lea, and about 30 miles northwest of London, it is an old Saxon town founded in the sixth century.
As you might expect from a town with such a long history, Luton is a great place to take a glance back into the past. St Mary’s Church is one of Bedfordshire’s largest churches, and it was built in the 12th century, while local museums like Stockwood Discovery Centre and Wardown Park Museum showcase everything that Luton has to offer, from archaeology to crafts.
Luton started hat making in the 17th century, and this became the town’s biggest and best-known industry. When hat-making started to decline in the 1930s, other industries took over. Vauxhall Motors operated a car manufacturing plant in Luton for many years, and its closure in 2002 left many Lutonians unemployed, but nowadays Luton Airport is one of the area’s largest sources of employment. Meanwhile, many Luton residents choose to commute to London.
With so many people coming and going, it’s no wonder that car parking in Luton can be hard to find, and that Luton parking prices can be so high.

Wardown House, Museum and Gallery is situated on the outskirts of Luton in a large Victorian mansion. Its collection focuses on the traditional crafts of Bedfordshire, from glassware and ceramics to notable displays of hats and lace. The mansion was turned into a museum in 1931 before which it served as a private home, and, during the First World War, as a hospital.
Another popular museum nearby is Stockwood Discovery Centre. Visitors can lose themselves in the surrounding gardens, which include a Sensory Garden, filled with flowers with strong scents and bright colours, a Medicinal Garden, which features plants with healing or health properties, and a Wildlife Garden. Inside, the Discovery Centre’s exhibits showcase local history, archaeology, geology and crafts, as well as Europe’s biggest collection of horse-drawn carriages.
The town is also home to a popular professional association football club, Luton Town Football Club. Formed in 1885, it started making payments to players as early as 1890, before becoming fully professional a year later, making it the first football club in southern England to turn professional. Both the club and its supporters are nicknamed ‘the Hatters’ as a result of Luton’s historical connection with the hat-making trade.
Find parking spaces within walking distance of Luton Town Football Club’s ground, Stockwood Discovery Centre, Wardown Park Museum, and Luton’s other great attractions by booking in advance with YourParkingSpace.
