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.

Really good hotel but really bad internet!!
By HAC Man
The title says it all really. The only bad thing about it. [Less]
Great staff and a great base
By leedsutd
All the staff are great here. I was checked in by Michuel? Who was great. He'd saved me a parking space,. Had my request for herbal teas and had kept one of the rare parking spaces for me. After [More] driving through London traffic this was all soon forgotten with such a welcome. The parking is expensive but work out but very very limited. I was fully recognised as a platinum member and offered a gift or points. The setting of toys hotel is ideal if you love camden or want to be close to events there. I do find it pricey for a holiday inn and stay in nicer hotels for the price. But the fact I paid shows I do love this hotel. My only negatives were that my toilet didn't flush was repaired once still didn't work and had to be repaired a second time. Not ideal. Also the breakfast was great apart from the scrambled egg which were some of the worst I've had. They were swimming in liquid and utterly tasteless. I ended up not eating them for the first time ever. Don't let this out you off going though. [Less]
Safety and Security
As a single, rather elderly lady I felt safe, secure and well looked after in this hotel despite being situated in a rather 'vibrant' area of London. [Less]
another wonderful stay
By diamond star
Have not been able to visit this Holiday Inn recently as normal but on our return it was just as we remembered it great!! - The staff as always are lovely and so professional - always get great [More] welcome as being an IHG member and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Will be back soon. [Less]
