Why Move to Hatfield
The small Hertfordshire town of Hatfield has an incredibly interesting history beginning in the depths of the Saxon era. In the past, being located on the main route north from London made Hatfield a popular stopover place for travellers. One of those travellers was novelist Charles Dickens, who set a scene in his novel Oliver Twist in the towns local Eight Bells pub.

Today around 35,000 people live in this area. Its excellent connections provide them with speedy access to the capital. A major attraction for city workers who can’t afford London’s high property prices. Only 20 miles from London and running beside the A1(M) motorway, direct trains run to London via King’s Cross station, Finsbury Park, and Moorgate.

However, it is conveniently close to Welwyn Garden City and St Albans offering a more comprehensive choice. Not only is the town popular with commuters, but it has also become a hot spot due to its highly reputable educational institutions, particularly the Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School and the University of Hertfordshire.
If you are looking to commute from somewhere in the county of Hertfordshire but need to remain a short hop, skip and a jump away from London, Hatfield may be your ideal location.
