Stradling the River Lea and flanked by the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), there are some fantastic walks around Luton. Riverside strolls, lovely parkland, adventures across chalk escarpments and magnificent viewpoints await from one of Britain's most populous towns. 


Within the town, the River Lea creates a beautiful green corridor, while an amble around the flowerbeds and lake at Wardown Park or a walk to see Stockwood Park’s huge ancient trees reward immensely. For a longer walk, it doesn’t take long to leave the streets behind and find yourself striding out across scenic downland.


If you’re after a stonking panorama and great views of the town, an ascent of Warden Hill is one of the finest hikes around Luton. The chalk downlands here form the Galley and Warden Hills Nature Reserve and are resplendent with wildflowers in spring. The neighbouring town of Dunstable is home to the chalk escarpment of Dunstable Downs. Boasting Bedfordshire’s highest point at 797 feet (243 m), the Downs are a delight to explore.
