Hemel Hempstead is a new town, expanded rapidly after the Second World War as an overspill for London. Set in the Hertfordshire countryside north of the capital, it is close to many attractions and makes a great base to get out and explore. Organising car hire in Hemel Hempstead is a great way to see the best of the area.

With its close proximity to a range of places to see and visit, Hemel Hempstead is an affordable place to stay with good road links to London and the Midlands...


With a modern shopping centre, the town is well served with shops, cafes and restaurants catering for locals and the many businesses in the town. The UK's first multi-storey car park is also believed to have been built in the town.

Hemel Hempstead is home to the Snow Centre, a major indoor ski slope with several runs as well as tuition for both skiing and snowboarding. Open year round it is a major draw across the area for winter sports enthusiasts.

Gadebridge Park is good for walks in the town centre and, in autumn, makes for a great show of colour as the leaves on the many trees turn from green to browns, yellows and reds.

Frogmore Paper Mill is an historic paper production mill and the oldest one of its type in the UK. You can visit to see how paper is made, as well as to stock up on all sorts of paper and writing materials.

You could also take on the 'Magic Roundabout', one of Hemel's notorious road junctions where roads from six directions meet at a complex roundabout, with vehicles being able to navigate both clockwise and anti-clockwise. It's ideal for the road enthusiast!

It's easy to arrange car rental in Hemel Hempstead before you travel and you can pick up your car at various downtown rental stations.
