Luton is made up of 19 wards, is governed locally by Luton Borough Council, and is about 30 miles north of London. It is one of three unitary authorities in Bedfordshire, and it shares a border with Hertfordshire. Luton was first settled in the 6th century, and has a long history of millinery, manufacturing, and sport.

Leagrave, Limbury, Warden Hill and Wigmore were formerly independent villages and hamlets before becoming parts of Luton. There are subcategories for areas of Luton in Places in Luton.

Highlights[edit]

Nearby places[edit]

This is a list of links to categories for some nearby towns and villages. Many small hamlets and villages have been absorbed by Luton as it has grown, and therefore some nearby places can be confused with Luton proper. For example, Leighton Buzzard shares a postcode with Luton, and Dunstable is often named alongside Luton as in the Luton/Dunstable Urban Area, or the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.
