Personal recommendation
Is the best place for study, because you stay at the university, is a very quiet place, is not the best university for having fun. Is very isolated from the city and the towns, you will need a car or to take a taxi if you want to go to the town after 5 h in the afternoon.

Final comments
Luton airport is the closest and cheapest to Cranfield University, flying from Spain. The university is very isolated and quiet, but this can not be a problem if you try to have new friends and meet people, I think this is the only place where you will have friends from all the parts of the world, I have really done it.
