The railway arrived in Tring in October 1837 but for some reason the town's station is located about 1.5 miles north-east of the town. From Tring, Monday to Saturdays there are 3 trains per hour southbound to London Euston, and an hourly service northbound to both Milton Keynes Central. Visit the London Midland trains website below for timetables and more info.
Tring is on the A41 between the larger towns of Hemel Hempstead and Aylebury and between the smaller towns of Berkhamsted and Aston Clinton.
There are 3 car parks in town, all are pay and display and free for the 1st hour (but you still need to display a timed ticket from the machine). The largest of the 3 car parks is behind Dolphin Square and you access it from Frogmore Street (the Motoring Centre is on the corner of this street).
As of yet there are no parking restrictions around town although there has been rumours of the introduction of residents parking bays.
Tring train station has a large car park (the station is not convenitenly close to the town centre) and costs £5 per day, except on Sundays when parking there is free.
- Road Trip
Tring train station
The problem with Tring station is that it is far closer to the village of Aldbury than it is to Tring town! It is possible to walk from the station into town but it is a long walk (not one you would want to do with children) and walk is not a very nice one in as much as the road is fast moving, the pavements are not great....
Buses go from the train station into town and there are usually minicabs loitering around the train station exit. Obviously the bus is the cheaper option but you'll need to check the time table.
