What travellers are saying
- This marvellous place has been on our to do list for some time and we finally visited on bank holiday Monday.
Its an amazing place,the gardens are beautiful and all the interior displays are very interesting,all the cariages,cars,steam engines,farming equipment.
Considering its free to enter,I think its a great place to visit especially in these cash strapped times.
I dont understand why there are so many negative reviews,be grateful that it dosnt cost an arm and a leg to get in and just enjoy the moment!Written 3 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We visited Wrest Park on a journey north. We were fortunate to join a 1pm Garden Tour of the grounds with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteer. The rain stopped and the sun came out just as we stared the Tour. Wonderful colours in the Parterre borders and beautiful parkland. The history of the house is unfolded in rooms within the grand property. No furniture is left given several changes of use. Just a note for English Heritage. Some of the artefacts inset in display cases have notes so small they are very difficult to read given the subdued light. Pleasant staff. Cafe and gift shop so we bought some items for gifts anticipating the festive seasonWritten 28 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- What a surprise this museum is. Very well laid out, very clean, very informative. Definitely a place to visit with a walk around the park. Everyone very friendly and they have a very nice cafe.Written 29 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Visited Aspire lounge on 1/9/22 in Luton, we were a group of 6 and had not reserved, and the lounge was at full capacity, but Valerie was very accommodating and managed to squeze us in and find us a table, which we were very grateful for. Thank you so much Val for the excellent customer service.Written 22 September 2022
- We took our two grandchildren ages 2 and 3 &half and they enjoyed the day out. Good value which included teacup roundabout and normal roundabout plus crazy golf which we did not play. Friendly place will go againWritten 2 August 2022
- Walk was not very well sign posted and was sometimes hard to establish which route would take you where. Overall, was nice views and ended up walking down the hill on the little stepping foot graves with the high winds which was scary and exciting! Tiny water falls going out. Overall the are was kept super clean!!Written 16 May 2022
- Easy to park if you get to the casino early.
If it is your first night bring some ID with you to obtain free membership.
The casino is great for bar snacks and has a nice restaurant,which is on the high side but good.
If you feel lucky have a go on the various games and tables.
If you fancy a drink with music go on friday for disco and live entertainment on Saturday with start time about 22.00/30 hrsWritten 29 October 2019
- As a Lutonian I know this park very well. As previously written it has lots going for it. Now it has crazy golf which is open weekend and school holidays, I believe you have to book on line but worth it as it looks well maintained and lots of fun. Also during the same times boats are now available to hire for the half a hour or longer maybe. A new children's small nature area with information on the new trees which have been planted has opened by the museum car park I found interesting to read about.Written 22 May 2022
- Beautiful scenic park, great for walks, picnics, horse riding and golf. Well maintained. They also have a running track.Written 8 June 2022
- Luton Hoo’s estate garden is a working restoration project and is lovely to support.. Out interesting guided tour of the garden, back houses and greenhouses was inc in the entrance - the old greenhouse block is actually too unsafe to enter. Lots of conservation work and hardworking voluntary gardeners are bringing the walled garden back to life but there is still lots work still to do. Great to visit, to wander and to support their conservation & restoration.Written 16 September 2019
- I have been going to The Arndale (as I will always call it!) for 40 years and I have seen a lot of changes, some good and some bad. It's a place that receives an awful lot of criticism, especially locally, but I don't think it's all fair.
Good points: Plenty of cheap parking, decent range of shops and places to eat, recent facelifts have made it a lot brighter and more welcoming, good access to the rest of the town centre, free WIFI, plenty of places to sit down and a manned customer service desk.
Bad points: Always has empty units and the range of shops is no where near as good as somewhere like Milton Keynes, there are no proper restaurants (Wagamama, TGI Fridays, Las Iguanas etc.) just fast food style places and snack bars/coffee shops, there are ALWAYS issues with broken lifts and escalators, the indoor market is always dark, unwelcoming and filthy.
I am hoping that the new owners, whoever they turn out to be as it's currently up for sale, address these issues as a town the size of Luton really should have a much better equipped town centre and shopping mall.Written 10 July 2022
- It’s quite an experience to squeeze through the tiny turnstiles situated between two houses. The walk in then takes you over the gardens of those who live nearby.
There isn’t any parking nearby so we stayed overnight at the premier inn (town centre) which was a twenty minute walk away.
The stadium is run down, the seats close together and the toilets are literally like an old outhouse / shed.
That being said the atmosphere was good and in the ladies loos they had complimentary period products should you need them.
We weren’t allowed inflatables in despite it being inflatables day. These were confiscated at the entrance.
The stewards were friendly and staff helpful.Written 8 May 2022
- Luton Market is located within the Arndale Centre which is a focal point of the town centre. If you head towards the Church Street exit of the centre the entrances to the market are on your left hand side.
Within the market there are stalls selling a wide variety of things. You can buy many different types of clothes, vape equipment, bedding and get your nails done.
There are also a lot of food stalls from across the world which is great. It shows what a multi-cultural place Luton is.
Sadly there are also a few empty units but hopefully this is an opportunity for someone to start their own business.Written 22 January 2022
- Only open 1 day per year to the general public but if you were a member of a Vauxhall Car Club there were other days where visits were organised. Just another benefit of being a member of a Car Club. This is a fantastic collection of Vauxhalls to view but space is limited so they are crammed together a bit.Written 9 September 2020
- In a town that is totally devoid of old buildings and good architecture, the war memorial and town hall are its crowning Town centre jewels.Written 16 January 2020
