The market town of Tring is in the north west of Dacorum. It is only 30 miles (50km)
north west of London. The A41 trunk road gives access to the M25,
with M1 and M40 within easy reach. Even though it's surrounded by
countryside, London is within an hour’s rail journey.
Tring High Street is a hive of activity with many traditional
and specialist shops. A general market takes place every
Friday and a farmers market fortnightly on a Saturday. A town
centre based auction house holds fortnightly auction sales of
furniture and general effects which are very popular and bring many
visitors to the town.
The town stands at a meeting of the ways. Where the
prehistoric Icknield Way crosses the Roman Akeman Street.
Perhaps because of the beauty of the surroundings, modern
Tring has retained its charm and character, and remains a pleasant
and fulfilling place in which to live, work, shop or rest.
