Located about twenty miles from London in the county of Hertfordshire, Hemel Hempstead was developed as a ‘new town’ in the wake of the mess left by World War Two. An affluent settlement, Hemel Hempstead is not short on cultural attractions and points of interest.
Bovingdon Market is an extremely popular Saturday and Bank Holiday market in the town. Located on a disused airfield, there are over 400 shops showcasing everything from food to fashion and, of course, flowers.
Located nearby is the church of England cathedral of St Albans, a hugely significant Norman structure that’s renowned across the country as Britain’s oldest cathedral. Dating back to 793, it still features much of the original Norman architecture, which was added some three-hundred years later in about 1077. The cathedral honors Alban, Britain’s first Christian martyr, who is thought to have been executed by the Romans in the late 3rd century close to Hemel Hempstead.
From Bennets End to Highfield to Adeyfield, Floom’s Hemel Hempstead flower delivery covers the town in its entirety.
