Harpenden is a picturesque and lively Hertfordshire town situated 5 miles north of the historic town of St Albans.
It has an abundance of character properties and good transport links, and it is easy to see why this attractive town is so popular with those who need to be close to the capital.
Living in London can be tough, and the obvious answer for City workers who hanker for a taste of country life is to commute from one of the various picturesque towns on the outskirts of the capital.
Harpenden locals insist that it is a 'village', so the term is used loosely here, especially as it has a population of around 35,000. However, on walking down the quiet tree-lined high street, with its restaurants and bistros - and no nightclubs - it is difficult to think of Harpenden as anything else.
Very convenient for the popular Eurostar service. Trains leave regularly - every fifteen minutes - from a very cental location, just off the High Street. Junction 9 of the M1 motorway is only around three miles away, making the drive to London, the North, or the M25 very easy. Luton Aiport is also a 10 minute drive away.
