Discover the hidden beauty in Luton

For house hunters seeking an alternative to Central London, but somewhere still in easy commuting distance, why not turn your head toward Luton? It is one of the key areas in the South East and yes, it may not have been on the top of your list, but trust us, there is more to this town than meets the eye.

Affordable homes

Luton has been named as one of the top five most affordable commuter towns in the UK. It is also home to our new development, Napier House. As part of the regeneration sweeping across the town, this development will see a former office building transformed into luxurious homes. Utilising the talents of our designers, builders and tradesmen, our vision for this industrial-style building will soon be brought to life.

The best of starts

Luton has seen a £500 million investment into its education facilities in recent years. Hillborough Primary School was graded ‘Outstanding’ in a recent Ofsted report, as did Denbigh High and Challney High for Boys. Incredibly, 92% of Luton’s children are lucky enough to attend a ‘good’ or ‘excellent’ school.

Sense of community

There is a true sense of community in Luton, with many campaigns supported by Love Luton embracing this culture. The Luton Poppy Appeal was launched by the Mayor of Luton in May 2014; this four-year exercise is encouraging people to plant poppy seeds in “remembrance of all those who fought and died in World War I and other battles, and remembering those actively serving our country today to keep us safe.” #openyoureyes launched earlier this year as part of the Clean for the Queen initiative, and encourages residents to take pride in their environment by helping to keep the town clean.

The quirks and the firsts

Like every city, town, and village, Luton has its own unique personality and sights. Luton is home to the first ever Domino’s Pizza branch, which is now an international brand. Luton Carnival is a must-see spectacle, bursting with colour, music, and dancing, it’s a day when everyone comes together to celebrate in glorious style. Two colours grace the streets all year round: the sea of orange and blue can’t be missed, especially on match days, when there is only one Luton Town! So if you’re looking for a town that cares, is diverse and affordable, but will also give your children the opportunity to attend a good or outstanding school, and still within easy reach of Central London, then Luton may be just what you are looking for!
