Getting here and parking couldn’t be easier...

Parking in Luton town centre at The Mall couldn’t be easier.

Market & Central Car Parks (Market Car Park is currently closed as well as parts of Central)

Take Junction 10 off the M1 and follow the signs to the town centre. Once on Gipsy Lane (A505) continue straight through the roundabout approaching St Mary's Road, where you will see a large church on your left hand side, remaining in the left hand lane pass through the first set of traffic lights. The Mall Luton will be on your left. A car park entrance can be found by taking the first slip road to the left (John Street) and following the road in to Melson Street which will lead you into Market Car Park.

Central Car Park is situated off Cheapside and can be found by continuing further along to the end of John Street.

Library Car Park (Closed except for NHS workers and visitors to the Luton Blood Donation Centre.)

Alternatively, additional parking is available in Library Car Park and is located off Library Road behind Luton Central Library and adjacent to The Galaxy.

Sat Nav users should use the postcodes LU1 2JX for Market Car Park, LU1 2HN for Central Car Park and LU1 2NG for Library Car Park.

Various bus companies offer services to Luton Town Centre, including Arriva, Centrebus and Stagecoach. Many of these services stop directly outside The Mall or within a 5 minute walk.

Please note that from Monday 1st June all of our car parks will be opening fully and normal charges will resume. Please note that due to the covid-19 virus we will only be accepting card payments.

In order to support key workers and those who need to use their cars to access essential services, our car park will be accessible free of charge from 26th March 2020. Normal tariffs will be reintroduced from Monday 1st June

There will be no need to use the car park pay machines, a measure which reduces possible exposure to the virus while also helping to reduce some of the financial burden on key workers and guests during this difficult time.

In line with the government guidance the centre remains open to allow our guests and the local community to benefit from the essential services, which remain open to the public and for use by local key workers.

At The Mall Luton parking is easy, safe and secure. We have three car parks offering convenient access to your Mall shopping centre, all of which are accredited by the Park Mark® Safer Parking Scheme.
