Luton and its neighbouring towns of Bedford and Houghton Regis make up an astonishing 250,000 people - a metropolis all of its own with two universities, airport, shopping centres and a number of large employers. The town benefits from an M1 link to London but also the breathtaking countryside in the form of the Dunstable Downs and Chiltern Hills. The centre is famed for its iconic town hall but it's the nearby Mall shopping centre which is the big attraction for most visitors. Luton is a major retail centre for the area with plenty of in-town and out-of-town stores.

Luton airport is close to hand and is, not surprisingly, one of the major employers for the area. Vauxhall Motors (owned by General Motors) remains one of the other major employers despite some tough times of late. Luton concentrates on the commercial vehicle side of the business but the securing of jobs at Vauxhall's Ellesmere car plant will have been a welcome vote of confidence for all.
