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.

Latest Hemel Hempstead Hotel Reviews


Went above and beyond
By Liv95
Absolutely fantastic hotel. The pool was so much bigger than expected, equipped with a steam room and sauna and jacuzzi - it was absolutely fantastic. Loved the "experience" showers by the pool [More] too. The shower in the bedroom was plenty big enough and everything was super clean and tidy. Couldn't rate this hotel any higher! The staff were so helpful, they gave us additional minibar goodies and hot chocolate for the room which went down a TREAT. The room service was super quick and efficient. Lovely food, generous portion sizes. Was so touchdd by the swan towels and heart confetti - was the perfect addition to our anniversary. Thank you! [Less]
beaconsfield in leafy bucks
By tigger
From our first contact with the staff at the front desk we were treated very well as did all the staff through out our stay.The food at breakfest had a wide selection and was very good.However the [More] celebration lunch we attend the service was excellent but the main course of chicken was spoilt by underdone vegetables this is only the one disappointment of our stay. [Less]

Great stay!
By Jordy1996
With the fact the hotel is opposite Luton Airport, i couldn't of had a much quieter night sleep. Arrived at the hotel around 4pm. Andrea certainly gave a warm welcome, being recognized as a member of [More] the IHG rewards club and especially offering me a CLUB chocolate bar, with is a FAB idea!! I work at the Holiday Inn express Exeter and I may have to steal the idea myself. Evening food was perfect, Breakfast great as well, would defiantly stay again sometime in the future. Cheers guys!! 10/10! [Less]

Weekend break with friend
By Steve09
Chose this hotel through previous business experiences. Read about the upgrade refurbishment and was so pleased with everything about it. From arrival to departure the staff were so friendly, helpful [More] and professional. Upgraded to executive room which was so clean and comfortable. The bar area was modern and inviting and lunch was very good. Bar manager was great and recommended breakfast after 9.30 to miss the early family rush. Special breakfast request was promptly dealt with and the service by the staff was first class staff. Could not have wished for a better place to stay and to meet up with friends. Great venue, great staff. [Less]
Great Customer Service
By Kim Kaur
I visited London to see some friends, so I spent most of my time outdoors. However, check in was excellent. I'm sorry I didn't take the ladies name but she really made my stay wonderful and made me [More] feel at home. I had no issues during my stay but the air con was a bit noisy during the night. I mentioned it at check out so that the maintenance team could have a look. This was not a major problem at all. Thank you for the upgrade and I will definitely be recommending this hotel to others. Hopefully I will be back soon. :) [Less]

By Kelly
Staff at this hotel are exceptional especially the receptionist, truly outstanding, I am a Hi diamond member but this stay of twelve rooms for a family function made me realise ihg have got it so [More] right! Well done. Thank you [Less]
