  About your Area
 

Leagrave is about 4 miles (6 km) from Luton Airport. The airport was renamed London Luton Airport in 1990, just before Ryanair took its business to Stansted. The growth of new low-cost flights rejuvenated the airport and passenger numbers more than doubled from 1992 to 1998.

[edit] Rail

Leagrave enjoys good rail connections via its station. Luton has two further train stations (Luton and Luton Airport Parkway) both of which are serviced by First Capital Connect (like Leagrave) but also Midland Mainline, which offers a much faster connection into London.

[edit] Road

Leagrave is connected to the motorway network by the nearby Junction 11 of the M1 motorway, (Junction 10 serves Luton South).

The M1 was built to the west of Leagrave in 1959, and provides access to London and the North. The A6 passes through Luton heading north to Bedford and south to St Albans (although south of the town the road has been re-numbered as the A1081).
