Stockwood Discovery Centre

Stockwood Discovery Centre

Stockwood Discovery Centre is a paradise for garden enthusiasts and one of the few places in the country where the work of acclaimed artist Ian Hamilton Finlay can be seen on permanent display. Each area in the garden has a special focus and even in winter visitors can enjoy the grounds. Our galleries tell the stories of real people behind the collections, exploring the history of the region from prehistoric times to the modern day. Highlights include the Wenlok Jug - a rare medieval masterpiece with strong links to Luton’s history and development, the town’s last tram and the famous Mossman collection of carriages - the largest collection of its kind on display in the UK.
