Home to an airport which serves Europe's leading low cost airlines, Luton is extremely well connected to most parts of the UK by bus. National Express operates a dedicated airport transfer service from London to Luton Airport, with over 60 departures a day and taking just over 1 hour to reach the airport. National Express operates other long-distance buses to Luton Airport and the town itself from various destinations around the country, with frequent services from Midlands-based cities such as Birmingham, Northampton and Cambridge. There's also a number of smaller regional bus companies who link Luton to towns in the surrounding area.
Most bus services to Luton arrive directly at the Airport Bus Station. The bus bays are situated right in front of the terminal building.
Other services also stop in the town itself at the Bus Interchange which is located beside Luton's main train station. It's then just a short walk into the centre of town to the University of Bedfordshire and Town Hall Square.
Luton is perhaps best known for its international airport which serves as a base for easyJet, Monarch, Ryanair and Thomson Airways. However, thhe town itself is also home to a historic market square and there are some great historical attractions like Luton Hoo manor house, which was once a resort for royalty. The local area also hosts the delights of Whipsnade Zoo, and the River Lea is a fine place to enjoy the English countryside.
