Wardown House, Museum and Gallery – Culture Trust

Old Bedford Road, Luton, LU2 4HA. Bedfordshire

Wardown House, Museum and Gallery is a Grade II listed building situated in the beautiful grounds of Wardown Park.

Formerly the home of the Scargill family, then a World War I military hospital, the house is now a museum. But not just any museum, this house transports you back in time, to a Victorian family home. Every room tells a story, with interactive displays, a treasure trove of local curiosities and the largest hat industry and headwear collection in the UK. The offer for schools focuses on the Victorian Home, the Victorian Hat and Plait making industry that shaped Luton and historic toys.
