Trains to Luton

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, north of London, Luton enjoys good rail links with both the UK capital and a number of cities in the Midlands. Direct trains arrive in Luton from Derby, Leicester, Sheffield, and London. Trains from London to Luton run with high regularity and can take less than 30 minutes.

Which is the main train station in Luton?

All trains arrive at the town's main train station, Luton Railway Station, which is located just at the northern edge of the town center, a short walk from the town's popular indoor shopping area, Luton Mall. A second station, Luton Airport Parkway, is used by those heading to Luton Airport, which is less than one mile away. From this station, passengers can board a Luton DART light rail link or a shuttle bus to reach the airport.

Which train companies offer trains to Luton?

East Midlands Trains operates the line from Sheffield to London, which means trains arriving from Leicester, Derby, Sheffield, and St Pancras are all operated by this company. However, the town is also served by Thameslink Rail, providing services not just from London St Pancras but also Farringdon, Bedford, and St Albans.

Why travel by train to Luton?

Luton Railway Station is conveniently located in the very heart of the city, where parking is notoriously difficult. It's also a speedier option than driving for those traveling to the city from London, Sheffield, Leicester, or Derby. Trains from London are operated by two providers and therefore run with a high frequency, with trains departing London St Pancras up to 10 times per hour throughout the day. Many trains from London take less than 30 minutes, although slower trains can take up to an hour, so travelers should check before they board.

Before you travel to Luton by train - good to know!

Although many visitors to Luton come to visit the famous Whipsnade Zoo, the quieter Woodside Animal Farm can be a more laid-back option, especially for those with young children. Visitors hoping to see nature in the wild should take a trip to Barton Hills National Nature Reserve, a beautiful hilly walking site located to the north of the town.

This historic town is home to plenty of landmark sites, but don't miss out a trip to the Vauxhall Heritage Centre. Vauxhall cars have been manufactured in Luton for 150 years.
