Hertfordshire is located immediately to the north of Greater London and much of the county is part of the London commuter belt. The county lies across major road and rail routes connecting London to the Midlands, northern England and Scotland via the A1, M1, A10, M11 and M25. Four principal national railway lines pass through the county into three of London’s main stations: Kings Cross, Liverpool Street and Euston. For families with good schooling on their minds, Hertfordshire has a selection of excellent state, selective secondary and 26 independent schools, including Merchant Taylors and Berkhamsted. Hertfordshire also offers a great balance of vibrant towns such as St Albans and Harpenden and bustling villages like Hitchin as well as a quieter life deep in the Hertfordshire countryside.
