The C32 starts as Magpie Hall Road, on a roundabout with the A2 and B2003 at the Luton Arches. If travelling west along the A2, one must do a whole loop around the roundabout to turn into the C32, as the left turn is forbidden. Heading south under the railway, the C32 sweeps through the terraced houses of Luton and past the former site of All Saints hospital. The C32 continues to climb before reaching a junction with the Walderslade Road. A right turn or straight on here will lead to the A230, but the C32 instead does a TOTSO to the left onto Walderslade Road.
A steep slope down and then up Snodhurst Bottom (with a speed camera at the lowest point) leads into Walderslade itself. Passing two secondary schools and a park, the road continues through housing before descending another steep slope to a mini-roundabout with Princes Avenues. Walderslade Road continues only for a short while before it turns into the Walderslade Village Bypass (with Walderslade Road split in two by a car park). The bypass has a sharp right turn, where it becomes Robin Hood Lane (to travel the whole distance of Robin hood Lane requires navigating three TOTSOs and a footbridge). The C32 climbs as it leaves Walderslade (and the local authority area), briefly becoming Fostington Way, before ending at a roundabout with the A2045.
