The Riverside Suite
The Perfect Venue and Location
Set within picturesque grounds, the Riverside offers over 530sqm of clear space with a ceiling height of 5.5m providing unrestricted views.
The main events space is air-conditioned, has an intelligent lighting system and is complimented by a private entrance, dedicated reception lobby and self-contained facilities. Double-height windows flood the room with natural daylight and doors open onto the patio and lawned gardens beyond, ideal for break-outs, drinks receptions, barbecues and summer parties.
The Riverside has played host to prestigious events such as the British Olympic Appeal Dinner with HRH The Princess Royal, pre-election campaigns by David Cameron, Jeremy Corbyn and other prominent politicians, numerous Vauxhall new car launches, team building activities for EasyJet and workshops for TUI.
We also now have the Juniper Suite for up to 56 delegates. This recent addition to our existing meeting and conference facilities is perfectly suited for large meetings, training courses, exhibitions, private party hire and can also be used as an ideal break out room when booked together with our larger Riverside suite.
By Rail – over the road
The Luton Airport Parkway rail station is directly opposite us with frequent Thameslink services to and from London. We are only 30 minutes from the centre of London.
From the train station exit via the same direction as the taxi’s and cars until you come to the pathway access to the main road. Cross the road at the pedestrian traffic lights and turn right. You will then see us almost immediately on your left-hand side.
By Air – 5 minutes in a taxi
London Luton Airport is only a 5 minute drive away. Regular buses or Taxi’s are available immediately outside the airport.
By Foot – 20 minutes walk from the town centre
From Park Square (by University of Beds main campus) head down Park Street (passing The Brewery Tap pub on your right then Iceland food store further down on your left). Continue along Park Street for approx. ½ mile, then turn left into Osborne Road. At the top of Osborne Road (past Vauxhall Motors main office on the left-hand side), turn right onto Gipsy Lane. After about 200 metres you will see the retail park on your left and then we are located on your right.
By Road - The M1 is just 3 minutes away
From M1: From Junction 10, take exit towards Luton. Go over next roundabout (Junction 10a) taking A1081 towards Luton Airport / Town Centre. As you approach a set of traffic lights, get in the left hand lane and via left. Turn left at next roundabout and the entrance is 200m on left (opposite the retail park).
From Hitchin: Follow A505 towards Luton. Follow signs for Luton Airport (clockwise round Luton, over several roundabouts).

Turn left at end of road onto Windmill Road, then straight over mini roundabout, we are on your right just after retail park traffic lights.
350 free car parking spaces available
Satellite Navigation users should be aware that our postcode is LU1 3JH and that for some reason you are directed across the road to the retail park. We are easily visible from the retail park; you cannot miss our large car park, main building and tennis courts.
