After a long break, pedalos have returned to Luton! Set in the beautiful surroundings of Wardown Park on the River Lea in Luton, this splendid lake has recently been refurbished, with a new suspension bridge for pedestrians, an island, and the shade of dozens of willow trees, which you can share with the friendly ducks. If you are looking for things to do in Luton, come boating with us. You can book online or just come and visit in person!
