Why move to Borehamwood?

Safe, affordable and within the M25, Borehamwood is the perfect area for growing families. With vast green spaces a ten minute drive away, it feels a million miles from any London postcode. Yet you can be in St Pancras in just 25 minutes. Maybe that's why so many people are relocating here from London's northern suburbs.

A little bit of history
Borehamwood is predominantly a post-war town, which in recent years has seen a bit of a boom in development due to its affordability. Neighbouring Elstree, on the other hand, owes its growth to the 1868 arrival of the Midland Railway station, but has a history that can be traced back to the 5th Century and the Battle of Ailestreu. These days the area as a whole is probably best known for Elstree Studios, which saw their heyday in the 1920s and 30s and is still home to BBC soap opera Eastenders.

Need to know
You'll often see an Eastenders' cast member wandering the streets here, with many living in Elstree and Radlett.

Shopping
If you want to feel like you're living in an episode of Eastenders, take a wander round Borehamwood Market on Tuesdays and Saturdays ' a proper old-style London market. Locally you'll find lots of independent businesses on Shenley or Leeming Roads, and there are several Kosher shops selling goods to the area's Jewish community. There's also a great little shopping centre called The Boardwalk, and Brent Cross is just a 20 minute drive away.

WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT BOREHAMWOOD IS THE COMBINATIONS OF CONVENIENCE OF HAVING LONDON CLOSE BY AND HAVING THE COUNTRYSIDE RIGHT ON OUR DOORSTEP.
