Berkhamsted is a vibrant little place, and buzzes on Wednesdays and Saturdays when market comes to town. Home to a fascinating patchwork of English architectural styles, the town boasts the oldest shop in Great Britain dating back to 1277! Berkhamsted is known for its good food and the High Street is a great place to find nice things to eat.
Berkhamsted stands on the famous Grand Union Canal, a haven for river wildlife, and the countryside around is rolling and gentle. All this just half an hour from London!
