Getting to Kenilworth Road

Familiarise yourself with the ground, how to find us, getting here by public transport and where to park.

Get to the ground early, relax and enjoy the build up!

Kenilworth Road is an old, and historic stadium and a home to the Hatters since 1905. As such, parking at the stadium is very limited indeed which means that unfortunately, car parking spaces are not available to the general public.

However, Luton is one of the best connected towns in the UK, with excellent rail, bus and airport facilities. If you're making your own way to the ground for a matchday, here's some advice for the best routes to take. 

Getting here

The ground address is Kenilworth Road Stadium, 1 Maple Road, Luton LU4 8AW. 

Train

The nearest station is Luton station (Station Road, Luton LU1 2LT) on the Midland line, operated by Thameslink.

The ground is a 15-20 minute walk from the station. We recommend you take advantage of the buses to and from the ground. Alternatively, from the Bus Interchange opposite the station, take the 'Luton - Dunstable busway' which stops outside the ground.

Other public car parks - in order of proximity

Get the Bus to Kenilworth Road

We would encourage supporters to consider public transport options to get to the ground wherever posisble.

The ground sits within the Bury Park area of the town, just outside the town centre. There are several public car parks within a 10-20 minute walk from Kenilworth Road.

Alternatively, the ground is easily accessible using the Luton - Dunstable Busway, simply take a bus from Luton Station towards Dunstable and descend at the first stop for Clifton Road. From there it is a short, 2 minute walk to the Maple Road turnstiles, or a 3 - 4 minute walk to the Kenilworth Road end via Beech Path. You can see a plan of the stadium here.

Traffic in the Town is often rather busy on Saturdays so we would recommend that supporters leave plenty of time to arrive at the ground, allowing for time to park and a short walk to the ground.

Kenilworth Road - home of the Hatters since 1905

The Kenilworth Stadium, Kenilworth Road or The Kenny as it is affectionately known has been the home of Luton Town Football Club since 1905. Although there have been many changes and additions to the ground in that time, Kenilworth Road has lost none of its original charm. The stadium is situated just outside the town centre in the Bury Park district of Luton.

Capacity
The current official seated capacity at Kenilworth Road is 11,050. Prior to the stadium becoming an all seater stadium in 1986, the ground was capable of holding in excess of 20,000 fans. The highest recorded attendance was 30,069 in the 1959 sixth round FA Cup replay against Blackpool.

Stands
There are 5 stands at Kenilworth Road:

  • Kenilworth Stand
  • Main Stand
  • David Preece Stand
  • Oak Road
  • Bobbers Stand

Families
Formerly, the David Preece stand was the allocated seating area for families, but since the 2015-16 season we recommend that families purchase tickets in the lower Kenilworth Road stand. If you're new to the ground, we recommend having a chat with the ticket office team - who'll be happy to help you find a seat that suits you.

Singing / Atmosphere
Kenilworth Road is famous throughout the country as an exciting and atmospheric ground. Although there aren't designated 'singing sections' we'd recommend the main stand or in the Oak Road end, where you're guaranteed plenty of atmosphere and noise.

Ticket Office and Shop
The home matchday ticket office and the matchday Club shop are situated at the Kenilworth Road end of the ground, directly in front of the stadium.

The ticket collection point for away fans is at our main ticket office at the top of Oak Road opposite Madinah Mosque.

Supporters arriving at the other end of the ground (Maple Road / Dallow Road / Luton-Dunstable Busway) who need to collect tickets from the ticket office should walk down Oak Road, then along Beech Path to the Kenilworth Road end. This walk should take about 5 minutes.

Your ticket will tell you which entrance to the ground you should use, please ensure that you allow enough time to find your seat ahead of kick off.
