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.
