The Leighton Buzzard Railway is located on the south side of the Bedfordshire market town of Leighton Buzzard, England. It is only 40 miles (65km) to the north of central London, and a short journey from most places in the northern Home Counties and southern Midlands.

For sat nav users, our postcode has recently changed to LU7 4TG, and we are at 51.90876 degrees north and 0.65157 degrees west. These should get you to our Page's Park station.

The Railway is within easy reach of the M1 motorway, the A5 trunk road, and London Luton Airport. The main line from London Euston, the Grand Union Canal, and National Cycle Route 6 all pass through the town. We're so easy to find!
