On Sunday, 26 May, Luton will be transformed by artistic revelry as The Luton International Carnival takes off. Having a serviced apartment will give you the space and luxury you need to relax after experiencing one of Europe’s largest one-day carnivals.
The glittering procession will move through the city for the whole day, filling the air with the sounds of musicians, steel bands and singing while the sky is filled with incredible floats. Street performers and artists will entertain you while exotic Asian and Caribbean delicacies will delight your taste buds.
For those that want to party to the unique sound of afropop, reggae, folk and samba bands, there will be a live stage at Wardown Park where you can dance the day away. If you’d like to pick up a memento of this fantastic and vibrant event, there will be plenty of stalls featuring interesting produce and crafts.
This famous carnival has been part of the city’s social calendar since 1976, so it’s no surprise that it attracts between 50 – 100,000 people every year! This does make travelling into the city difficult, so why not book into a serviced apartment and make a weekend or holiday of it? There are plenty of other great attractions in the area and a day of soaking up Luton’s rich restaurant culture or taking a leisurely walk through some of the beautiful parklands is the perfect way to recover from your carnival experience.
Serviced apartments give you all of the creature comforts of home without any of the expenses or restrictions that come with booking into a B&B or hotel. They’re also serviced on a weekly basis so you don’t need to worry about cleaning up or washing bed linen. Instead of being limited to a single room as you would in a hotel, you will have a full apartment to stretch out in that includes two bedrooms, a fully-fitted kitchen and a living room equipped with a luxury home entertainment system. If you want to post your carnival pictures onto your social network account or send out a few emails, you don’t have to go looking for an Internet café as high-speed broadband is included.
Don’t let travelling to your accommodation be a hassle – pick a place that has good links to Luton airport and the main rail station. If you prefer to travel by car, make sure your serviced apartment has secure parking. Above all, when you’re booking for the carnival you need a place that’s in the heart of the city so you can step out of your front door and right into the glitter, music and festivities.
