Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Kenilworth Road is a football stadium in Luton, Bedfordshire, England. It has been home to Luton Town Football Club since 1905 when they left Dunstable Road. The ground has also hosted women's and youth international matches.The 10,356 all-seater stadium is situated in Bury Park, one mile (1.6 km) west of the centre of Luton. It is named after the road which runs along one end of it, but the official address is 1 Maple Road. Kenilworth Road hosted football in the Southern League until 1920, then in the Football League until 2009, when Luton were relegated to the Conference Premier. It has hosted Football League matches once more since 2014.The ground is known for the artificial playing surface which was present from 1985 to 1991, the unusual entrance to the Oak Road End, and the five-season ban on away supporters that Luton Town imposed following a riot by visiting fans in 1985. Floodlights were fitted in 1953, and the ground became all-seated in 1986. The record attendance of 30,069 was set in 1959, in an FA Cup sixth round replay against Blackpool.HistoryLuton Town moved to Kenilworth Road in 1905, leaving their previous home at Dunstable Road after their landlord sold the site for housing at short notice. The club's directors quickly procured a new site, and the club's first match at the new ground came on 4 September 1905—a 0–0 draw against Plymouth Argyle. Watford player C. Barnes scored the first ever goal at the stadium, in a reserve match. Originally known as Ivy Road, the new ground brought success with it—in their last season at Dunstable Road, Luton had finished second from bottom, but in the first at Kenilworth Road, Luton finished fourth in the Southern League.

  • When I was just a little boy, my father asked me, what will I be, Watford or Luton Town? WASH YOUR MOUTH MY SON! AND GET YOUR FATHERS GUN, AND SHOOT SOME LUTON SCUM. WE HATE LUTON. LUTON R NONSES
  • What can I say as I'm a Luton supporter. Great club,traditional stadium. Food prices recently increased this season, from £2.70 to £3 for 50p pukka pie, Cornish pasties the same. Don't buy a cone of chips from the club's van outside, £2 for about 7 chips. Bars don't have air con and can get very uncomfortable. The staff work hard in those conditions every home game, need the extractor fan turning on,once in a while (every home game), or fixing! Draught bitter is east coast IPA takea some getting used to, still not used to it after a year. Lager is Carlsberg,both cost £3 /pint. Other bottles beers are available as are soft drinks. Toilets. Get in quick if you want to wash your hands after your actions....taps don't turn off properly so the tanks empty, wasted water,,wasted money heating it . Management staff and safety team are great, food vendors inside the ground are a mainly a nice Bunch of happy kids.
  • Luton Town is garbage. And heres why: WHO PUT THE BALL IN THE LUTON NET WHO PUT THE BALL IN THE LUTON NET SUPERRRR SUPER MATT SUPERRRR SUPER MATT SUPERRRR SUPER MATT SUPER MATTY GODDEN.
  • Great experience all the time. Even though some traffic ..
  • Great atmosphere from one of the few remaining traditional clubs, one with character. A compact ground with close proximity to the pitch and the action.
