Hoddesdon is an attractive, well-kept historic market town in south east Hertfordshire with ancient charters granted by Henry III in 1253 for both a weekly market and an annual fair.
Large parts of the town form a conservation area comprising numerous beautiful, historic buildings and inns, many dating back to the 16th century.
The town centre is located close to the A10 and has good transport links, a good range of supermarkets and independent retailers, including numerous restaurants and cafes. There is a local theatre, museum and library and several local parks/open spaces. Also within easy reach of the town are local primary and secondary schools, as well as local churches.
There is ample public parking with a number of short stay on-street parking bays, as well as ‘free’ parking in all the supermarket (some for up to 3 hours) and several pay and display car parks for longer stays.
Street markets are held in the High Street every Wednesday and Friday.
