The Fountain

Fantastic for Asian outfits and the prices are good. The staff are friendly and attentive. This place can be easily missed as it's not in the congregation of shops further down the road.

Great shop

Great selection of many Bibles and books, gifts and cards and everything you need. Well stocked children's section too.

The shop has a wide selection of Bibles, Christian books, children's resources, cards and gifts. It has free parking and in a corner of the shop you can sit down and have a coffee or tea for very much less than you'll get anywhere else in Luton!
