Dating back from the 10th century, Hertford is a lovely old market town with plenty of things to see and do. Four rivers, the Beane, Rib, Mimram and Lea all converge in Hertford and flow on to join the River Thames, which make it a very picturesque town with lots of green trees spread across the riverbanks. Hertford offers great public transport links - it has two train stations, Hertford East and Hertford North, both of which are within walking distance from the McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development. Hertford East can have you in London in under an hour, while Hertford North runs a direct service to London Kings Cross on the weekends.
