BERKHAMSTED is a historic market town situated in west Hertfordshire between the towns of Tring and Hemel Hempstead. It is also a civil parish with a designated Town Council within the administrative district and borough of Dacorum.
The town is situated 25 miles (40km) northwest of London and is accessible from the M25, M1 and M40 via the A41. In 1993 a bypass was opened to alleviate congestion caused by traffic passing through the town centre; the London-Birkenhead A41 road now passes west of Berkhamsted.
Berkhamsted appears to be part of middle-class suburbia and is considered a desirable commuter location for London. 35% of employed residents of Berkhamsted and Tring work in those towns, whereas 65% commute to other workplaces. Alternatively, of the 7,100 people who work in Berkhamsted, 58% commute there.
The town centre supports the typical range of banks, small offices and other services, as well as restaurants and a variety of shopping facilities. These include high street chains, a Saturday street market, a Friday antique market, designer boutiques and specialist shops. Many of these are independent traders.
Berkhamsted is home to the BFI National Archive’s “The J. Paul Getty, Jr. Conservation Centre”, a department of the British Film Institute. With over 275,000 feature, non-fiction and short films (dating from 1894) and 210,000 television programmes, it is one of the largest film archives in the world.
Berkhamsted railway station is one of the busiest stations on the West Coast Main Line: one and a half million journeys are made annually to and from Berkhamsted, the vast majority by commuters to and from London.
