Coach Tours - St Albans Coach Hire
Arranging the perfect day out for the family is easy with St Albans Coach Hire. Hemel Hempstead is a bustling Hertfordshire town with a modern town centre, an interesting Old Town, and markets held throughout the week including a popular weekly antique market.
A walk around Hemel must begin at the modern Marlowe’s Shopping Centre located at the heart of the town and is part of a largely pedestrianised central shopping area. A little further past the pedestrianised area you will find a colourful traditional market which sells everything from fruit and vegetables to household goods. On Wednesday’s the market becomes a haven for antique browsers looking to find a bargain. The new town is also home to Hemel Hempstead’s Water Gardens, designed by famous architect Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe in 1957.
You can use St Albans Coach Hire to head on to the Old Town, and in particular, the High Street said to be one of Hertfordshire’s prettiest streets. The Old Town streets leading off High Street are full of specialist shops selling anything from fine art to angling supplies. From here, you can follow in Henry VIII's Footsteps along the Hemel Hempstead Old Town Heritage Trail which extends along the Gide Valley passing the March Mont Arms to the picturesque hamlet of Picots End.
Hemel’s streets are lined with numerous cafes and restaurants for a break throughout the day, but for pub food in particular head to the Old Town area where many good quality establishments can be found. The Old Town is also home to many of Hemel’s finest restaurants offering every type of cuisine from Italian to Thai. A short drive east of Hemel Hempstead is the ancient Roman town of St. Albans, home to the Verulamium Museum and this makes the perfect place to pause before arranging for the driver of your St Albans Coach hire to take you back home.
