The small town of Hatfield, in Hertfordshire, is the home of many celebrities, political leaders, musicians, authors and even royalty. Edward VI and Elizabeth I grew up there, but that’s not where its claims to fame end. Indeed, Hatfield has also inspired several directors such as Steven Spielberg, who filmed Saving Private Ryan there. Hatfield House and park were used as the Croft Manor in Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie, and Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of Sherlock Holmes was also filmed in the area.
The town is famous for its airfield which opened in the 1930’s and many famous aircraft were designed by the Havilland Aircraft Company, relocated there after outgrowing their original Stag Lane home. Even Amy Johnson was based there on the fateful day that her aircraft crashed into the Thames Estuary. Moving to Hatfield is like stepping right into its amazing history, as the town played an important part in some of the major events of Britain’s past.
Nowadays, Hatfield offers a nice selection of both sports and cultural activities with Europe’s first Digiplex Cinema Centre, two nightclubs, some restaurants, a public library, parks and green spaces as well as gyms, football, rugby, tennis and cricket clubs, a swimming pool and lovely areas for hiking or leisurely country walks.
But Hatfield’s real highlight is the University of Hertfordshire, giving the town a young and lively feel. There are many job opportunities for students and accommodation can be provided in the Hall of Residence.
For families looking to relocate in the area, there are several nursery, primary and secondary schools. Situated 20 miles north of London and a mere 14 miles from London Luton Airport, the town is perfect for commuters looking for a quieter home away from the big city.
Hatfield’s shopping centre, the Galleria, opened in 1991 and is considered one of the best of its kind. The design of this retail and leisure centre is nothing short of stunning, and features 20,800 sq m worth of designer outlets, restaurants, cinemas, leisure facilities and enough parking space for 1,700 vehicles.
Hatfield really has something for everyone and will know how to make you feel right at home as soon as you move in, whether you are a student looking for the perfect accommodation, a family wanting to offer your children a pleasant, safe home town or a retired couple in search of a quiet neighbourhood close enough to all the great things the capital has to offer.
