Luton's only redeeming feature
Luton airport, when it was plain (or is it plane ?) Luton airport was run by the local council and happily ferried people to their two week annual packaged holiday on the Spanish costas.
It's only claim to fame was that it was the rather surreal catchphrase of Lorraine Chase who would answer any sophisticated question with the immortal words 'nahh Luton airport"
About 10 years ago it began to get ideas above it's station and was a some point re-named London Luton Airport.
Once Easyjet moved in the place really began to take off. Nowadays you can use this airport to get to London from any number of places across Europe.
The picture shown is part of the offices complex known as 'Easyland' which is not as the name suggests an Amersterdam red-light district amusement park, but rather the corporate HQ of Easyjet and its other offshoots.
Get Out Of There!
The first thing you should do when you come to Luton is leave. Or at least drive to Milton Keynes (just up the motorway, junction 14... i think?) It's fantastic for shopping, watch out for those roundabouts!

Not exactly the greatest tip but it was hot when I visited and going for a paddle in the town centre's water feature/fountain was fun.
It was me and a mass of toddlers....you just know the other adults wished they could relax and get their feet wet.
