Although most people tend to think of Hemel Hempstead as a post-World War II new town, its history can be traced back as far as the 8th century. Its origins are still evident in the quaint Medieval buildings in the Old Town and the Norman church that lies at its heart. Although just 35 miles from London, the town is picturesque and surrounded by enough greenery to make you forget that the capital even exists. However, despite its village feel, Hemel Hempstead packs in everything you'd expect from a 21st century town, including excellent shopping and a fine range of restaurants. The Hemel Hempstead Hillfield Road NCP is conveniently located close to most of the town's amenities, making parking in Hemel Hempstead simple and hassle-free.
