Visitor Information

Bramingham Wood is owned and managed by the Woodland Trust as a Community Woodland and is accessible to visitors at all times. It is situated on the north side of Luton, west of the A6, between the Bramingham Park and Marsh Farm estates and can be reached by bus from Luton Town centre (Nos 24 and 25 and No 27 to Marsh Farm).

The nearest train station is Leagrave on the Thameslink Bedford-Brighton line, about 2 miles away. Car parking is available near the wood's two main entrances: Whitehorse Vale on the northern edge and Lygetun Drive in the south.

For visitors on foot there are several alternative entrances around the perimeter of the wood, from which a network of paths can be reached. In particular, the surfaced path down the meadow area on the eastern edge and the parkland to the south east, both of which are managed by Luton Council, allow easy access to the wood.

Visitors should note that the southern tip of the wood is owned by the Girl Guides Association and there is no public access.
