Why Chiltern Relocation loves Berkhamsted: This historic town is full of character and boasts a fabulous High Street which is the heart of the town. There are excellent housing options available for families who are keen to enjoy all the town has to offer as well being on the doorstep of the countryside.

 

Berkhamsted is a very attractive town situated in the west of Hertfordshire between the Tring and Hemel Hempstead. With journey times of just 33 minutes into London Euston it is a popular choice for commuters. The town is situated in a valley with a wide High Street lined with many Grade II listed buildings – indeed this is the location of the oldest known (1277–97) extant timber framed building in Great Britain.

 

There is a weekly market on the cobbled 13th century Market Square and a monthly famers market. The High Street attracts many visitors due to the wide range of independent retailers, antique shops and cafes. The art deco Rex cinema in the heart of town originates from 1936 and is Grade II listed. It has recently been restored to its former glory and shows both vintage classics and modern blockbusters.

 

The Grand Junction Canal runs through Berkhamsted, parallel to the High Street and there are plenty of riverside walks to be enjoyed. Berkhamsted is also well known for its castle, now in ruins and under the care of English Heritage.

 

There are excellent schooling options and the town is well known for the private co-educational Berkhamsted School. The town has a wide range of sporting facilities on offer notably golf, cricket and tennis.
