House Removals Luton
Luton sits just outside of London and, for this reason, it is becoming a commuter hotspot. Not only are individuals and families drawn in by the quick connection times to the city, they are also enticed by the area’s future regeneration plans which aim to boost the town centre’s shopping and travel facilities. Like many areas outside of London, the location is championed for its beautiful countryside, which contrasts against the popular shopping, entertainment, and eating opportunities. People who live in Luton suggest they benefit from having the best of both worlds.
Moving to Luton
Those who move to Luton will be benefitting from much lower house prices than the surrounding areas. As the town is also home to Bedford University, there are a number of rental opportunities and it is very popular with students and young professionals. Cardigan Street has been dubbed ‘The Student Village’ by locals.
Traditional family houses in Luton can be purchased for less than a studio apartment in London and, for first time buyers, there are a vast number of properties under £125,000.
Moving to Luton couldn’t be easier. The Britannia Harrison and Rowley office is located just 40 minutes away from Luton, in St Neots. The team at Britannia Harrison and Rowley are not only able to provide you with a seamless moving service, but can also provide bespoke storage solutions.

Particularly loved on Sundays is Luton’s The Mall shopping centre. Members of The Mall receive a free gift when they spend over £50, and with stores such as Debenhams, Footlocker, Topshop and H&M, this is easily done. There are also some great restaurants and coffee shops for a much earnt rest.
Bury Park is just a mile away from Luton and is becoming exceedingly popular. It is a shopping destination championed for its market, which is home to fashion retailers, and food stalls.

Transport Links Luton
Many who live and work in Luton completely dismiss driving into the town during peak hours. The traffic congestion is often nightmarish, and many prefer to get the bus which can by-pass the majority of this due to dedicated bus lanes. Arriva operates the majority of services, most of which terminate in the town centre.
Luton has three train stations which are all located on the same line; Luton, Luton Airport Parkway, and Leagrave. This line connects the town with nearby Dunstable, Welwyn Garden City, and Chiltern Green. Getting in to London is easy, with trains calling at London St Pancras (23 minutes) and London Blackfriars (46 minutes) multiple times per hour.
London Luton Airport is also handily located just one mile outside of the town and is perfect for frequent business flyers. Flights from this airport travel to the majority of popular European destinations, as well as the likes of Dublin and Glasgow.
