Luton

rural crafts and trades. *Luton Carnival, one of the largest summer carnivals in Europe. Buy * '''Debenhams''' * '''Marks & Spencer''' newly built. * '''Primark''' * '''Wilkinson''' * '''TK Maxx''' Luton's Arndale centre was the largest indoor shopping centre in Europe when it was opened in 1971, and it includes a large indoor market. Better (that is, more interesting) shopping is to be found in nearby towns: St Albans, Hitchin and Welwyn Garden City. Eat * '''Balti Nights''', on Wellington Street, just off the High Street by the Town Hall. Great value curry house, has an offer of a popadom, curry, rice and a naan for just £5. Lots of dishes to choose from and very vegetarian friendly. Despite the bargain prices they serve great curries freshly prepared and staff are very friendly and always remember you. * '''Bellini's''', located in the town centre, is a bar and club by night, but during the day it serves up reasonably-priced, semi-Italian cuisine. * '''Lazim''', in the Bury Park area, is a newly opened Indian restaurant with delicious and affordable food; to get an incredibly-priced buffet, go for lunch or on Sunday evenings. * '''Leaside Hotel''' (listed in the accommodation section below) has the most varied menus, including British classics, Mediterranean food and seafood. Portions are generous and booking in advance is a good idea. A great range of food is also available at the bar. The mix of Victorian surroundings and unobtrusive modern touches make this place stand out in a town that many consider a desert for foodies. You should note that, at the time of writing, the main restaurant is closed on Sunday evenings, so do check if you are going on Sunday. * '''ZaZa''', on Park Street. Authentic Italian family run restaurant. Huge portions and great value, a proper little piece of Italy in the heart of Luton. For a quick bite, walk through the Arndale (large shopping centre) and grab some ethnic specialties in the market, such as an Indian samosa or savoury African pancake. There are also franchises like Costa, Gregg's, and McDonald's. Aroma, the Asian restaurant in the Galaxy, offers an incredible (though pricey) buffet; for cheaper prices, go for lunch. Drink * '''White House''', attached the Galaxy cinema bowling arcade complex. Very friendly atmosphere, complete with a fireplace, armchairs, and bookshelves lining the walls.
