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.
