Why Move to Royston?
A quaint market town, Royston is located in the District of North Hertfordshire and falls within the affluent county of Hertfordshire. Sitting on the border with Cambridgeshire, Royston is where locals can live, work and play — so this is no dormitory enclave.
You are close to both the A1(M) and M11, and trains to London King’s Cross take 41 minutes making a commute easy if you have to. Currently there is no Waitrose or M&S (watch this space), which helps to explain why you will be able to afford a family home for less than £370,000.
Royston is safe, has a number of good schools and within a few minutes you are amid some of Hertfordshire’s most beautiful countryside. Once surrounded by forest, Royston was a favourite place of King James I for hunting. The King acquired a number of buildings in the town and many of them still survive to this day.
Much of the area is semi-rural. The public open space and nature reserve of Therfield Heath overlooks the town from a hill to the south-west and plenty of residents have relocated to Royston to escape the claustrophobia of city living. The town centre offers all you would expect to cope with day-to-day necessities. Amenities include a few specialist businesses, several supermarkets, a baker, some lovely independent shops and a choice of restaurants, cafes, takeaways, and pubs.
Residents can also enjoy Royston’s traditional twice-weekly market which sells a myriad of produce, home wares and clothing. With larger towns located nearby it is just a quick journey to experience a more comprehensive shopping experience.
A real community spirit and a wealth of amenities and events make Royston an increasingly popular town particularly with escapees from the capital.
Royston Schools & Education
The town may be small, but it has some very good schools within its catchment area.
There are seven primary and middle schools serving Royston.
Of these, four of them have been rated as “good” by Ofsted. St Mary Roman Catholic Primary School and Icknield Walk First School were both rated as “outstanding”.
Of the five closest state funded secondary schools, each one was rated as “good” following their last Ofsted inspections.
Currently, there is no college in the town. Children travel to Cambridge to attend college and just 16 miles from the town is the bustling University City of Cambridge.

Royston also offers the opportunity to buy a larger home at a cheaper price in comparison to either London or nearby Cambridge who averages are £487,761 and £649,941 respectively.
No one can blame young families for leaving London. Prices are so prohibitive in the capital that owning a house or flat suitable for raising a family is only within the reach of high earners or those with parents rich enough to pay the deposit.
The town offers a good mix of housing styles from the recently built Hedera Gardens development to the many listed and character buildings within its town centre.
If you are looking for a home in the countryside, just a few miles from Royston are some stunning villages to consider such as Barkway, Melbourn and Meldreth.
Closer to town you will find some very reasonably priced homes and smaller terraces popular with first time buyers.
Currently the average purchase price is £444,437. However, you can buy a three bedroomed home in the town for between £360,000 – £602,000.
At the lower end of the market, the cost for a one-bedroom flat starts from £150,000 up to £275,000.
There is just one new build development under construction by Redrow. The site has a selection of 2- and 3-bedroom homes. For further details visit:
