What's it like to live in Luton?
What are the local amenities like?
Is it an area on the up?

I wouldn't advise it. I lived there for 15 years and it has changed for the worse. I moved to Hertfordshire and have not looked back. The schools are some of the worst in the county in Luton, there is a major drug problem in many areas. Crime is higher there than other towns in Beds. ( I was burgled 3 times in 2 years) There are many closed businesses and people don't seem to want to invest in the town. My advice, look elsewhere!!!

Hi, I've been living in Luton for 19 years. I personally think it's a nice town. Of course there are bad area's, you get that in every town, you have the good area's. Overall it's good. I did move to Harpenden, but ended up moving back to Luton.

I think Luton is a good town. I've lived here for 20 years and I've seen a lot of improvements to the town. Are you thinking of moving to Luton?

Hi, my husband and I have moved to Luton in 2008 and havent regretted it. As the others have already stated there are shady areas which you should avoid but then again I think all towns would have such places. People are nice and still say thank you to the bus driver before getting off. Stockwood park is lovely and it's just one of many greeneries. We now have a 1 yr old baby and we're hoping to get her into a good Catholic school just some minutes walk from our house. I think it's a pity a lot of people are putting Luton down but I think it's a very nice place to live in and raise a family - convenient too as there are fast direct trains to London. Good luck with your move :)
