Hemel Hempstead was developed after the Second World War, but has been a settlement since the eighth century. In recent years, Hemel's popularity has surged (along with the investment yields) as people head out of London looking for more affordable rentals but great transport links (from here you can be in London Euston in 31 minutes).
Hemel Hempstead is divided into old and new towns. The old town is quaint and villagey, with independent shops and cafes. The new town has a wide choice of supermarkets, shops, cafes and restaurants plus a cinema and bowling complex. Sought-after areas include Leverstock Green, for its village atmosphere and pubs, Boxmoor, for the train station, and Apsley Lock for its views over the Grand Union Canal.
There are well regarded state and private schools in the town, a number of which focus on particular areas of the curriculum. So whether you're looking to let or rent in Hemel Hempstead, the haart Lettings team is here to help.
