Visiting Hemel Hempstead
Strolling around Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town, with its 12th-century church and Georgian buildings, it’s easy to forget you’re in a post-war “new town” that’s home to hundreds of businesses. The town is a great base for exploring the footpaths of the Chiltern Hills, or visiting nearby Warner Brothers Studios for the Harry Potter tour, and it’s only half an hour from central London by train.

Hemel Hempstead: town layout
Hemel sits on gentle hills north of London, where the Gade and Bulbourne rivers meet. Roads radiate from the so-called Magic Roundabout, designed in the 1970s to ease traffic congestion. The main railway station is to the west, while just north are the shopping district of Marlowes and the Old Town. The eastern districts of Maylands and Leverstock Green are home to many local businesses. The M1 motorway passes by here, crossing the M25 on the way to Watford and London. Across the motorway stands the cathedral city of St. Albans.

The concierge recommends…

  • The Snow Centre, where you can whizz down a 160-metre indoor slope on skis or a snowboard.
  • Enjoying the fresh air among the trees in riverside Gadebridge Park.

Hotels in Hemel Hempstead
Hemel Hempstead was designed as a series of self-contained districts, so wherever you stay you’ll find plenty to do.
Accommodation near the main station or in the district of Apsley – where there’s another station – gives you easy access to London. You’re also close to the Old Town’s shops and trendy spots along the river.
Districts to the east, like Maylands and Leverstock Green, are closer to many corporate headquarters and business parks, and have easy access to the M1.

Eating Out in Hemel Hempstead
Hemel Hempstead offers a good mix of international and traditional fare, from spicy Nepalese dishes at Infinity to Keralan specialities at The Cochin and hearty pub grub at the canal-side Paper Mill.
If you have a bit more time, book a tour of Frithsden Vineyard followed by a wine-tasting session. The winery’s Terrace Café is a perfect spot to relax with homemade food and a glass of Frithsden wine.

The chef recommends...

  • Braughing sausages: A Hertfordshire speciality with subtle herbs and spices, these sausages make a delicious breakfast. Or you can serve them up for dinner with gravy and mashed potatoes.

Shopping in Hemel Hempstead
The Old Town's streets are lined with independent boutiques and antiques dealers. The nearby pedestrianised district of Marlowes is home to high-street favourites, restaurants and cafés. Marlowes Shopping Centre and the open-air Riverside precinct here add to the lively atmosphere and make the area the town’s shopping hub. If you want a full day out, head west to Jarman Square, an entertainment complex that includes a cinema, an ice rink, shops and eateries.

Hemel’s Markets

  • General market: Browse the stalls for fruit, vegetables and clothes every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
  • The Exchange: You can search for hidden treasures among the antiques and collectibles here every Wednesday.
  • Old Town Sunday Market: Held on the first Sunday of the month, this is a great place to find handmade local crafts, or to pick up fresh ingredients for dinner.

Culture & Nightlife in Hemel Hempstead
You can book tickets for an evening of theatre, film or music at The Old Town Hall, a cosy theatre housed in a Victorian building in the Old Town. During the day, pop inside to catch free art exhibitions or relax in the café.
If you crave big-screen entertainment, Jarman Square’s Empire Cinema shows everything from blockbusters to arthouse classics.

Our favourite hotel in London
By The Easter Bunny
This was the third time at this hotel, we will return for the fourth. Big rooms and bathroom, comfortable bed, kind and smiling staff, and very close to our favourite places in London. [Less]
Great hotel, great location, great staff
By Caroline
I cannot fault this hotel. Check in staff are friendly and helpful. Very iconic location. Very accessible for the tube, bars [Less]
Hotel Indigo
By Asw5
Staff are very friendly and hotel appearance is good. Suite was lovely as was a free upgrade - not sure I would have been so pleased had I paid full price for it. View was non-existent, furniture [More] in sitting room needs replacing and the chair next to the desk is too low to use the desk! Worst part of the stay was the restaurant. Poor choice on the menu and poor quality of food. Big disappointment to me as I normally stay at the Holiday Inn in Chalvey (Slough) and the food is excellent. [Less]
Great location
By Rachyrach73
Fab location for shopping. Tube 5min walk away so easy access into the city without the city price and plenty of parking. Lovely staff. The beds are do comfortable that you won't want want to get [More] up, thank God I'm a reward customer have late check out [Less]

Lovely hotel next to the airport
By janette44
I would definitely recommend this hotel if flying out of Heathrow. Friendly staff, clean comfy rooms and quiet, so easy to catch a few hours sleep before flying. Bar food very good. Can leave car at [More] hotel and catch shuttle bus or taxi to airport just 5 minutes away. [Less]
Great Staff.
By PS1066
I stay at this hotel on a regular basis. The staff are always welcoming and friendly. Depending on the room you get there can be some noise from the runway but given the location this is only to [More] be expected. I have tried other hotels in the area and match the welcoing staff and location for what I am looking for. [Less]
Excellent Choice for Airport Stay
By Rene
A short distance from the airport this full service hotel offers comfortable accommodations. The front desk staff were amazing. We arrived early in the morning after an overnight flight and fully [More] expected to wait for hours before a room was ready. We were given a voucher for a coffee and snack at the bar. Within half an hour the young lady from the front desk found us and told us she had an upgrade to an Executive room ready for us. What a welcome surprise at 8:30 in the morning. Will definitely be staying here again. [Less]
