Luton is a large town with a population of over 200,000 and found just 30 mile north of London in the county of Bedfordshire. As expected due to its close connection to London it has excellent transport links and London Luton Airport is found within the boundaries of the town.
Luton is a thriving town with lots of shops, the annual Luton Carnival which attracts over 150,000 people, a collection of museums, theatre and rural outdoor attractions such as Stockwood Park. There are many industries and commercial companies operating in Luton, the most notable of these is the car maker Vauxhall and EasyJet which both have their UK headquarters in the town.
