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.
