Brookmans Park is a quaint little village in Hertfordshire that is perfect for families with children or people who are ready to escape the big city life of London. London is amazing, with opportunity round every corner and so many ambitious places and people, but all this comes at the very high price of living there. Not only is living there expensive, but the property prices, that are ranked higher than the ones in Monte Carlo, are through the roof, and way too expensive for the average working person. The solution is commuting.

However, getting back to their big city life day job is not a problem, as the developments are a stone’s throw away from the train station, that can take you to central London in less than half an hour.
The village itself is well known for its history, with Brookmans Park transmitting station playing a great part in Great British history. This transmitting station was the first twin transmitter station that was able to broadcast two radio shows simultaneously in October of 1929.
Furthermore, Folly Arch is a local landmark that can be seen from most of the village comes with a legend that generations of children have tried, about a farthing being placed under each brick on the arch. Every time it has been false, but over the generations this has caused damage to the arch and so in the 1980s a protected fence was placed around the arch. Additionally, the children’s nursery rhyme Miss Moffat is based off Miss Muffet, a girl who grew up and lived on a farm in Brookmans Park in the 1500s.
