Favorite thing: Perhaps Hemel Hempstead doesn't have so many attractions and action as you could find in London, but this is one of the places you could settle in if you're not so 'in love' with London and its rush. Nice and cosy houses, not so many renters, what makes the environment much cleaner.
Favorite thing: The Kodak building is known as the gateway to Hemel. It sits at the Magic roundabout and has great views across the town from the top. Its also the UK headquarters of the Kodak empire!
Fondest memory: Hemel Hempstead is 30 miles north of London. Easy road access is via the M1 motorway .Leave the motorway at junction 8. Nearby towns include Watford, Luton and the city of St Albans. Trains depart from Euston to Hemel (and on to Birmingham) about every half hour and take 35 to 40 mins to reach Hemel.
Favorite thing: Well, as I've wrote this on my main Hemel Hempstead page, this city is different from London and you can trully feel this. Good for to see a different side of England.
Favorite thing: Ok , moving on 107 years to the same spot in the High street. Some buildings still remain but the transport has changed quite a bit!!
