Luton Town

You ​​know how, when a place gets cool and gentrified, some people say it was a dump that needed work, but others say it lost its essence and now it’s too nice? Let’s just say that Luton—both town and club—isn’t cool and hasn’t gentrified. Yet. And we think it’s great exactly like it is.

Going to a Game at Luton Town

GETTING THERE: It’s an easy 20-minute walk from Luton Station. There isn’t a bus line that helps, either. PUBS: There’s nothing at or near the ground.
