Trains to Luton

Luton’s Midland Road station arrived in 1867, built by what was then the Midland Railway to serve a population that had exploded in the 19th century – thanks largely to the town’s thriving hatmaking and newspaper printing industries. At the turn of the 20th century, engineering and manufacturing came to dominate, with Vauxhall Motors opening up a plant in 1905. While the products changed, the growth continued – Luton station was completely rebuilt in 1937, and got a new fourth platform in 1960, followed by a fifth in the 1980s. Luton station is situated close to the River Lea in the heart of Luton, a short walk from the town’s The Mall shopping centre, the Hat Factory arts venue and St Mary’s, the town’s striking medieval church. To the north and west of the station are the Moor, the People’s Park and Popes Meadow, all of which are remnants of the Great Moor, the public land through which Luton station and the Midland line were built.
