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.

Well located Hotel
By Jips
The staff are the major asset for this Hotel. I liked the interior layout particularly the central lounge bar courtyard type area with the rooms around the perimeter. The young Asian lady on [More] reception was exceptional. The room was spacious and well appointed ( carpet needs replacing in the room we stayed in though) Internet service was very good The price of staying at this hotel I fear was way more than I would heave expected in a hotel of this type. Maybe advantage is being taken of the scarcity of accommodation in MK. I did not appreciate having to spend a further £8 to park my car for the day!! No need to do this it will only have a detrimental effect on the Hotel's reputation. (perhaps too many business people staying here on expenses?) [Less]
Great reception service
By Flow50
We only stayed one night. Peter on reception was extremely helpful both prior to and on checking in. Room was modern and clean. Beds comfortable. All staff were friendly. [Less]
Overall good experience
By Lyno
From the moment we arrived we were greeted as an IHG guest a little disappointed with the black stains on the carpet in our room and the damage to the side of the bed which seemed to be patched up [More] with parcel tape.The nights sleep was disturbed by very noisy guests in the room next door..Other than that the rest of the experience was very good good check in and out was faultless and we were even afforded an hour later check out.Also we requested extra tea bags and milk which was no problem to the very willing staff.Breakfast was very good with a good and varied choice. [Less]

Beds were very comfortable so was the service from each and every staff
By Hardik
The breakfast selection is 0 for the vegetarians. ...you need to work on the menu for the vegetarians. ... [Less]
Functional hotel in a good location
By cantankerous
No complaints. Staff competent and helpful. Car park convenient. Glass-backed lifts with view over the street as you go up and down - these little things make a stay memorable - in fact, it was the [More] quirky lifts that reminded us that we'd stayed in this hotel about 10 years ago. The one thing that let this hotel this hotel down for us, both now and 10 years ago, was the average quality of the breakfast and the rather unattractive breakfast area. That said, the breakfast isn't expensive by London standards. [Less]
Spacious clean rooms
By Penny 603
A comfortable smart modern hotel. FREE self service breakfast with a variety of cooked and fresh foods and drinks. There is a small secure car park which costs £20 a day and it is an easy location to [More] access from the A4. Walking distance to underground station for accessing London sites, local shops and Chelsea Football ground You can check out the area on Google Street View.. [Less]
