Luton to Leighton Buzzard
Follow National Cycle Route 6 through Bedfordshire on this attractive route known as the Luton and South Beds Way. The route starts by Luton rail and soon passes through Wardown park with its attractive lake and the Luton Museum & Art Gallery.
A short section along the River Lea and a series of off road paths then lead you to Dunstable. On this section you will pass Leagrave Common and Houghton Hall Park before arrving at the pretty Grove House Gardens in Dunstable. Just south of the route is the interesting Dunstable Priory and Friary which is worth a visit if you have time.
From Dunstable you join a splendid off road section along the Sewell Greenway taking you towards Stanbridge before a series of quiet roads takes you into Leighton Buzzard where you will cross the Grand Union Canal before finishing at the train station.
