London Luton Airport Destinations

You want to escape the big smoke for somewhere sunny/snowy or just downright different and London Luton Airport (LTN) is the most convenient departure point?

We’ve got you covered with this guide to the latest and greatest LTN destinations, so grab a cuppa and spend a few minutes right here to choose your perfect location and get booked.

Now, we know lots of travelers pass through LTN to grab great deals on flights. But if you’re from out of town, you might actually want to take a little time to explore Luton itself, because there’s more to it than you might expect.

For instance, if you like expansive green spaces, you’ll love Wardown Park, which boasts its own lake, mini-golf course, playground and bowling green. More than enough here to while away a few hours.

And while you’re at it, you’ll probably want to visit the Wardown House Museum, which recounts the history of Luton from its early Saxon settlement days as a Saxon to its modern-day glory as a buzzing town. You can learn about all the ups and downs, see cool exhibits about local industry and culture, and even dress up in Victorian costume (if you fancy it).

If we had to pick one winning attraction in this part of the world though, it would almost definitely be Luton Hoo, a sublime stately home is set in 1,500 acres of pristine parkland. You can tag along on a fascinating guided tour of the house or alternatively, take a cathartic stroll through the gardens and gaze at the magnificent trees (one of which is a 300-year-old cedar).

Prefer your attractions more cutting-edge? No problem, because the Stockwood Discovery Centre is an immersive, interactive museum that’s the perfect place to learn about STEM topics and the environment. There’s tons to see and do for kids of all ages.

And if your credit card’s burning a hole in your pocket, head into Luton town centre for a spot of retail therapy. You’ll find a selection of diverse shops to suit every taste, from high street favourites to chic independent boutiques.

And if you’re feeling peckish, treat yourself to a meal at one of Luton's many fine restaurants. Luton has a buzzing cuisine scene, with dishes from all over the world. You can try everything from Great British pubs to world fusion restaurants.

Meanwhile, if you love the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd, the Gordon Craig Theatre hosts everything from plays and concerts to musicals and exhibitions.

And there are lots of other great venues too. Like The Bear Club, a friendly bar and club with live music on weekends and an awesome drinks selection. Or The Hightown Club, which keeps the dancefloor packed with everything from current chart hits to classic club bangers.

For something more traditional however, you’ve also got traditional Great British boozers like The Barrels, The Fox and The California Inn. And when you want somewhere comfy to stay the night, you can try popular picks like the affordable and ship-shape Thistle Inn Express Luton Airport, budget travel specialist Holiday Inn Luton, or luxury Luton Hoo Marriot and The Farmhouse at Redcoats.
