Berkhamsted

Berkhamsted is a medium-sized historic market town on the western fringe of the English county of Hertfordshire. Positioned in the small Bulbourne Valley in the Chiltern Hills, it has developed into a commuter town, due to its location 26 miles to the northwest of London. As per population information from 2013, the town has a resident population of about 18,100, occupying around 7500 households. There are a number of structures in residential areas, with 77 percent of household spaces being houses or bungalows and 23 percent being flats or maisonettes. Settlements have been established in Berkhamsted for more than 500 years, supported by archaeological evidence of flint working throughout the Neolithic age and metal working throughout the late Iron Age and Roman periods. Although farming, service and light industry were characteristic occupations in the area in 1986, the most important employers in the town in 2015 were educational facilities and retail. Nearly all of the companies can be found in the famed Berkhamsted West ward. In 2014, the Academy of Urbanism's Urbanism Awards referred to the character of Berkhamsted's High Street as 'vibrant' and 'bustling', making a 'pleasant' and 'successful' shopping retreat. You can find a wide array of stores and food outlets available to citizens and tourists, being home of a mixture of independent and commercial chain shops, cafes, coffee shops, eating places and bars. For social events, the Rex Cinema presents a number of new movies for the citizens of Berkhamsted to watch. Being built in the art deco style of architecture in 1937, the Daily Telegraph has described the Rex as the UK's most beautiful cinema, and it was declared Britain's Best Cinema in the inaugural Guardian film awards of 2014.
