Location - Royston
Royston is a traditional English town, located within Hertfordshire and on the border of Cambridgeshire, just 14 miles from the city of Cambridge. Royston has a wealth of rich heritage, grown from the crossing of two ancient thoroughfares—Roman and prehistoric—and has attracted many great names, including many Royal family members.

The town enjoys numerous green open spaces, including the renowned Therfield Heath nature reserve, and lies on the northern slopes of the Hertfordshire Chalk Downs. Royston even has its own cave, revealed back in the 18th Century, carved out of chalk and located under the crossroads in the centre of town.

On the outskirts of the town, there is a larger group of supermarkets, and within the town centre, there is a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, bars and public houses, offering a diverse mix of food and drink, as well as a market and a high street full of bustling shops, including post offices, convenience stores, hairdressers, and clothing boutiques. Residents have access to a range of doctor’s surgeries, dentists, schools, and a leisure centre, providing a fully stocked gym and fitness classes. Whether you are young or old, single, a couple or a family, Royston has all the facilities you may need, and there are even lots of clubs and activities to join, such as tennis, rugby, hockey and golf.

As well as people moving up and down the property ladder locally, Royston is a very affluent area and is becoming more and more popular with the commuter market. There is great security in that house prices have held well through turbulent markets and thrived above the national average in more settled general economic and market conditions.

Royston boasts excellent transport links for residents, visitors and businesses. The town is located on the A10, with the A1M and M11 each within a 15-minute drive. There is a mainline train station with a regular service direct to London Kings Cross as quick as 38 minutes. If you want to travel internationally, London Stansted airport and London Luton Airport are both just half an hour's drive away.

If you aren’t familiar with Royston and its beautiful surrounding countryside, we recommend paying it a visit today!
