Needed to kill a few hours with my kids in the Luton area and after a bit of trip advisor research came a cross this place. My only negative is that it was not as big as I had thought based upon what I had read. That said there is a good mix of items from different eras, Swords, coins,... More

We love the stockwood discovery centre! Such good value for (no) money. Loads of interest for our kids (ranging 5-11 on the last visit).

Whenever we look after our grandson, age 6, at our house during the school holidays, we always pay a visit to Stockwood Park Discovery Centre. He loves going there first, even before visiting the playground. There are exhibits to suit all ages, a history of Luton, old buses, cycles, cars etc. and lots more. And the best thing of all...

Three friends and I discovered this centre quite by accident on our way to Surrey. We stopped to while away an hour and were blown away by what was exhibited. Here must be almost every form of transport known to man, from gypsy caravans and sedan chairs to the cars of Luton's 1960s car industry. Every kind of cart and... More

Not bad this place. Few things to do and worth a visit. The spinning coin thing is amazing. Loads of old carriages and cars to look at. When I visited they has steam engines running. This was good to see these looked after and running. Worth a visit if you are passing.
