If you are considering Moving to Luton in Bedfordshire, it’s close to London and relatively cheap compared to other areas. Along with the Arndale Centre which when originally built was the largest indoor shopping centre in Europe, Luton has a number of smaller shopping areas dotted around the town.
Luton Hoo Mansion House
On the southern edge of the town is the wonderful 5* hotel and restaurant, Luton Hoo. Built in 1601 and set in 1065 acres of extensive grounds which were landscaped by Capability Brown. It’s been used as a film location for a number of films and television series such as Inspector Morse, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Vanity Fair and Nicholas Nickelby. The hotel is now owned by Elite Hotels and would make the perfect location for a special celebration. Luton is also remembered for the Lorraine Chase advertisement featuring Luton airport… ‘was she truly wafted here from paradise!’
Good connections, London in 30 minutes by train, Luton Airport and the M1.
Ofsted report that Bushmead primary is ‘very good’ and Denbigh High is ‘effective’.
Property prices if you are looking to move to Luton
Plenty of Edwardian housing and 1930s semi detached homes. Although you would be wise to watch where you purchase a property due to the flight paths and there are some rougher areas. Average property prices are £163,620, showing an increase of 8.12% over the past 12 months. Detached family homes are between £280,000 and £500,000. Semi detached homes start at £180,000 and smaller terrace properties are priced from £160,000. Old Bedford Road close to parks and with easy reach to the town centre is considered to be a prime location.
