holiday and travel guide to the UK

Dunstable, almost a suburb of Luton, is a large and busy market town at the bottom of the Downs.

One of the town's attractions is the open-air market that is held around Ashton Square every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, except some bank holidays.

The Priory church has part of a 12th century abbey and is worth a visit, as is the Priory House Heritage Centre.

For an evening out, check what's on at the Grove Theatre, the town's arts centre, which you can find in Grove Gardens.
