Harpenden Certificated Locations

Harpenden is situated in the English county of Hertfordshire. Although it is a town, it still retains a village feel and has a real sense of history thanks to its period cottages, common and Roman remains, notably a mausoleum at Rothamsted.

It's a great place for a relaxing day out with all the family, as there are plenty of parks and green spaces. You can cycle along the Nickey Line or in Heartwood Forest to enjoy the wonderful countryside and spot wildlife including dragonflies in the summer.

Harpenden also offers a self-guided heritage treasure hunt to take you past attractions such as the churches, war memorial and much more, so follow the signs and look out for the clues.

There are eateries to cater for all tastes, as well as independent shops to browse along the high street.

And if it's raining, don't miss out on the chance to let the kids blow off some steam at indoor soft play centre Big Space, which also has a viewing cafe for parents.
