Luton

UK travel information
 
Luton is a town located within the Bedfordshire county of England, around 32 miles north of London. Amongst the many varied things to do in Luton is The Luton Carnival, held annually on the late May bank holiday, and is the largest one-day carnival in Europe. There are a number of cultural attributes within Luton, including the Luton Museum and Art Gallery, housed in a large Victorian mansion in Wardown Park on the outskirts of the town centre. The collections include traditional crafts of Bedfordshire, notably lace-making and hat making, with samples of local lace from as early as the 17th century.
