About Harpenden

Harpenden is a thriving commuter town located half way between St Albans and Luton

Although it has some 30,000 residents and a growing number of small to medium sized businesses, Harpenden still retains a "village" feel with its tree lined High Street, town greens, period cottages, and Common – 96.39 hectares of open space that supports cricket, football and Golf clubs whilst boasting a County Wildlife Site designation.

The Town Centre offers eating establishments to cater for all tastes, bespoke shops and three supermarkets and a selection of good Public Houses. There are two further shopping areas in Southdown and Batford. Residents can also enjoy the many attractions London has to offer, which is only a 20 minute train ride away by the Thameslink train service. Alternatively, Luton Airport, less than 5 miles away, acts as a gateway to an extensive choice of European City destinations and beyond.
