Luton is a town in Bedfordshire which is home to one of the UK’s major airport. Whilst it may lack the aesthetics and attractions of some of the country’s tourist destinations, it is a portal to several major cities, surrounded by stunning countryside, and features a thriving and diverse cultural scene in its own right.
The south east midlands region is also subject to a major £256 million redevelopment programme, which seeks to double the size of its economy by 2050 and Luton is at the centre of such plans. The region is already seeing growth thanks to the high concentration of business and innovation assets including Luton Airport Enterprise Zone, which makes the town an important up-and-coming economy for the UK.
Just 30 miles from the centre of London, Luton’s soaring business scene and its established cultural identity mean it is an increasingly intriguing city that is attracting business and leisure visitors in equal numbers.
