Made a visit to Wardown House Museum and Gallery, which has just re-opened after an extensive refurbishment.
The museum contains several galleries dealing with the history of Wardown House and the development of Luton (including an exhibition of several hats)
The Hertfordshire & Bedfordshire Regimental Museum, contained within the house, covers the history of the Bedforshire Regiment through its merger with the Hertfordshire Regiment after the First World War, and its present day formation as part of the Royal Anglian Regiment (D Company, 2nd Battalion).
The house is contained in a spacious park with plenty of trees, and worth a visit in its own right.
Admission to Wardown House Museum and Gallery is free and well worth a visit.
