Luton, once the home to a substantial millinery industry, is now a bustling metropolis featuring a large shopping centre and indoor market. John Street is very well placed for commuters being only a few minutes walk away, with train services available either from Luton mainline station or slightly further afield at Luton Parkway station. Both stations provide prompt access to London St. Pancras with some fast trains reaching their destination in under 30 minutes. The site is also well positioned for the University of Bedfordshire which brings students in from around the UK and the world. A new Carnival Arts Centre is in close proximity to the development with a new 46 million University library opened in 2016. Luton has a wealth of leisure activities and amenities available including the David Lloyd Sports centre at nearby Capability Green, Stockwood Park with its golf course and of course it is home to "The Hatters" - Luton Town FC. The town also has a specialist craft museum and a museum housing the Mossman Collection of historic vehicles from the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries. Further afield are the vast outdoor spaces of National Trust land including Dunstable Downs, which is home to Whipsnade Zoo, the London Gliding Club and the Icknield Way Path. The main shopping area in Luton is centred on The Mall which had some construction and re-design work done to it in 2011/2012 and is again located within a few minutes walk of the development. This now has a new square which is used for leisure events, as well as numerous new food restaurants and retail outlets. Located inside the main shopping centre is the Market, with a choice of stalls including: butchers, fishmongers, fruit and veg shops, hairdressers, tattoo parlours, ice cream, flower stall and T-shirt printing, as well as eating places.
