If there is one thing that Borehamwood is famous for, it is the reputation of the place as a film location. As such, it has always been a point of interest for many who pass by, and even those who choose to buy a home here. The town has more than film history to offer. From green stretches to historic museums and premium entertainment, Borehamwood is nothing short of a gem town in Southern Hertfordshire.

The park offers a great opportunity to those who wish to get away from the busy town for a little while and experience the beauty of this ancient woodland with oaken trees and wildflowers. The fact that it is so close by is a great plus.
