M1 Junction 10 dog walk and cafe near Luton, Bedfordshire


Combination of a safe and tranquil park for dog walkers, and a fabulous museum that is a joy for kids of all ages to visit. The cafe and facilities are squeaky lovely too.  This stop works best for two or more people as dogs are banned from inside the facilities.   Dogs aren't allowed in the museum, but the caring curators there do provide dog water bowls for after-walkies rehydration.


GPS coords for car park: 51.8672, -0.4249  There are several car parks at Stockwood Park for park users, and a separate car park for the museum. All are free. If you're planning a visit to the museum/discovery centre as well as the dog walk, it's OK to park in the museum car park (London Road) so that you're nearer to the facilities.   Discovery centre entry is free.  Inside there are WCs inc disabled, a cafe, shop, children's activities, gardens and exhibitions. Summer opening hours are 1000-1700 Mon-Friday;  1100-1700 weekends; Winter: 1000-1600 Monday-Friday, 1100-1600 weekends.


Stockwood Park is an ideal place for a walk and keeping your feet dry on wet days.  The paths are hard surfaced, and friendly to buggy wheels and wheelchairs.   There's no shortage of things to interest dogs, with old trees, plenty of squirrels and room for ball games.

Luton Park

We visited last May, very handy place to walk whilst waiting for an Arrival at the airport. Only a very short drive along the dual carriageway to the airport. Park has a huge drawback though, NO DOGS at the facilities, DWD Team - that could be awkward and we're looking for an alternative. It's never a good idea to leave your dog tied up outside.
