LOCATION - HERTFORD
Hertford is the county town of Hertfordshire, believed to have been habited since around the 7th Century. Today, Hertford is a bustling market and riverside town with a population in excess of 25,000.
Hertford is a beautiful market and riverside town and in fact has 4 rivers; the Rib, Beane and Mimram join the River Lea in Hertford. Hertford is located off the A10 and also has the equally popular town or Ware just 3 miles up the road. The town is one of the areas most popular and you really do have the best of both worlds, surrounded by the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, but well connected to London. If you are a commuter or just like to have regular day trips to London you are just 20 miles away by car and with very easy access by Hertford East station to Liverpool street (approx. 49 mins) or Hertford North Finsbury Park/Kings Cross (approx. 35 mins).
Unlike many towns, Hertford has a bustling high street and very much has a social 'café' culture. There are over 200 shops in the town centre, a mixture of high street chain stores, specialist shops, restaurants, hairdressers, banks and other retail services. One of the attributes that distinguishes Hertford from its larger neighbours is the number of independent traders and specialist shops in the town. The number of eateries is in excess of 40, ranging from Thai, through to Indian, Japanese and Italian, to fish & chips and kebabs. Befitting a market town, every Saturday there is a charter market in the town centre and a farmers' market every second Saturday of the month.
With regards to education, this is one of the biggest draws to the area. To name a few you have Simon Balle primary school through to sixth form, the prestigious Richard Hale secondary and sixth from college, Sele secondary school and then located within a few miles of Hertford and Ware you have private schools including Haileybury, St Edmunds College, Heath Mount and Duncombe schools.
