A taxi driver's guide to Luton

Luton isn’t just an airport for cheap airlines. It’s also a town in its own right. And like all towns, it can be difficult to get around. Which is why Addison Lee are now offering a complete guide to the area for when a Luton taxi just won’t cut it. So for anyone looking for more than just a taxi to Luton airport, read on for our minicab driver’s guide to all the best restaurants, bars and must-sees of the town and surrounding areas. Home of the Hatters – or Luton Town FC to the rest of us – this humble spot in rural Bedfordshire was once a bucolic countryside retreat. And while the more industrial town centre may now leave something to be desired, a lot of what makes Luton great is only a short taxi ride away. Places like Hitchin, Knebworth and Hemel Hempsted (all no more than 20min taxi ride away) offer the area a richness that might not be so obviously abundant in the town centre. If you do spend a little time in Luton, you’ll probably notice that the town has something of an obsession with hats. The Hatters, The Hat Factory (actually a comedy club), there’s even a Luton Hat Trail (less fun than it sounds). So stick on your explorer’s cap – or go and buy one at one of Luton’s many hat shops – and get ready for our Luton taxi driver’s guide to the very best the town and surrounding area has to offer.
