In the vicinity of Luton, you can visit the ruins of the ancient Someries Castle, which was built to protect the city in the 15th century. In the 18th century, the castle was partially destroyed due to numerous battles. By this time it had completely lost its strategic importance. The stone, from which the castle was built, was used by local farmers to build and strengthen their houses. Now on the territory of the castle, fragments of the main walls, as well as a small watch house and a chapel are preserved.
