Skimpot is a suburb of Luton in Bedfordshire, England. The area is roughly bounded by Dunstable Road to the north, Hatters Way to the south, Skimpot Road to the west, and the M1 to the east.
Originally a small rural settlement, Skimpot was engulfed by the expanding town of Luton in the mid 20th century, and also adjoins the smaller town of Dunstable to the west. Skimpot Road forms part of the border between Luton and Dunstable.
The east side of Skimpot was the former site of Luton Stadium, a former greyhound racing stadium. The stadium was constructed in 1931 and racing continued there until 1973. The site is now an industrial estate.
Skimpot makes up the south-west area of Challney ward, which is represented by Cllr Khtija Malik (Labour), Cllr Tahir Malik (Labour) and Cllr Tom Shaw (Labour).
The ward forms part of the parliamentary constituency of Luton North, whose MP is Sarah Owen (Labour).
