Situated in West Hertfordshire, almost on the border with Buckinghamshire, Tring was originally important for its position on a major route of communication at a low point of the Chiltern Hills, known as the Tring Gap. The modern town is equally well served by transport networks, close to the main motorway network and on the fast rail line to London Euston.
Once housing industries as diverse as brewing and lace-making, Tring has largely reverted to its former role as a quiet country market town and, as such, has become increasingly popular as a destination for city commuters seeking to move house from London to the country.
