Places in the UK – Hertfordshire

Charming villages, culture-filled towns, picturesque parks, and independent shops.

These, teamed with the fact it’s well-known for being a commuter belt to London, makes Hertfordshire a very desirable county to reside in. A few of the most popular areas include St Albans, Rickmansworth, Much Hadham and Bishop’s Stortford. Hertfordshire has good schools, nice parks and woodlands - to name a few of its strengths, so it’s definitely somewhere to consider when planning your UK relocation. Chorleywood in Hertfordshire was also voted the ‘happiest place’ to live in the UK back in 2004!

In this blog, we’ll share a little about why Hertfordshire makes an ideal place to live:

Restaurants and pubs

Where do we begin! There really are so many wonderful and diverse eateries to try across Hertfordshire. You have Gables Restaurant in Hertford – a charming place serving delicious Mediterranean food, Auberge du Lac in Welwyn – a modern French fine dining restaurant, Thompson St Albans, a British restaurant offering a variety of vegetarian dishes, and Village Taverna in Ware – a popular, traditional Greek restaurant.

Arts and culture in Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire is home to the University of Hertfordshire Arts + Culture, which brings fine art and culture to the Uni campus and its local community. Courses include theatre, performing arts, music, visual arts, film & TV, and art. It is also a place with a rich history – home to a castle that was constructed in 1086 where Queen Elizabeth I lived as a child, and it’s still in use today as a Hertford Town Council public space. There’s also Hertford Museum to explore, which houses artefacts and photos from the town’s long history.

The great Hertfordshire outdoors

There are so many outdoor activities to enjoy across Hertfordshire. You’ve got Hatfield House and Park – a beautiful stately home with a farm! There’s also Fairlands Valley Park where you can sail bell boats, fish, swim and play on the adventure play area, and the Northaw Great Wood in Cuffley, which supports a wide ecosystem of natural wildlife, including butterflies and mushrooms.
