Luton is town packed full of cultural diversity with many different leisure and entertainment facilities. The thriving range of pubs and restaurants is a reflection of the many different cultures found within the town including, Thai, Indian, Chinese and Italian eating establishments and Café's. This is complemented by the range of entertainment's found within the Galaxy Centre, the UK's 1st town based multiplex and entertainment centre. It hosts two all you can eat restaurants, a cinema, bowling alley and bingo hall, as well as a few extra pubs and clubs.
The Arndale Centre has recently completed a £27 million refurbishment and is an extremely pleasant place to shop and work. It contains a wide variety of shops for instance, Marks and Spencers, Next, Boots, Adams, WHSmiths, Tesco's and Top Shop, as well as a number of smaller retailers and an indoor market.
Once you have shopped and dropped in a pub, café or restaurant, why not try one of the Town's exciting nightclubs. There are many to choose from including the renowned @mosphere, which has recently been renamed SPACE and was recently rated in the top ten nightclubs in the UK!
If none of this takes your fancy, the town centre has many other things to offer. St. Mary's Church is a beautiful place to visit and just next door is Luton University rated best in the country for graduate employment. Perhaps heritage is more appealing and you would therefore be in luck. The Town Hall is in the centre of Luton and a grade II listed building. It is also the most recognisable building in Luton.
Along with all this, Luton has fantastic transport links, with the M1 linking to London and Milton Keynes and the train, which make both Leeds and Brighton just a few hours away. Moving around the town can be by foot, on one of the many bus companies that service the Town or by Taxi straight to the door. Translink will, in the future, provide another choice in transport, linking Luton to Dunstable with a quick, easy and reliable service.
With Luton growing and set for further expansion the town centre is set to become on the most desirable places to be.
