On arrival at St Margaret’s Bus Station in Leicester, we suggest taking a taxi for the short journey to the DMU campus. This should cost between £5 and £10.


There is a direct train between Luton Airport Parkway and Leicester; the journey takes around an hour. Note that you will first need to take a bus from the airport for the short journey to Luton Airport Parkway station.

The train fare to Leicester starts from around £25, though please note this may vary depending on the time of day you are travelling. Plan your journey and check departure times and prices at National Rail.


A pre-arranged taxi from Luton Airport to DMU usually costs around £70. If more than one of you are travelling together this might be a good option because you could share the cost.

There are a number of Leicester taxi companies with whom you can book advance pick-ups. You will need to make your own arrangements directly with the taxi company and pay the driver yourself in cash. Please note that these companies are not connected to or endorsed by DMU in any way. Should you choose to use one of these companies it is entirely at your own risk and any such liability is expressly disclaimed by DMU.

Please be aware that using a taxi waiting at the airport will usually be much more expensive than a taxi that you have booked in advance.
