Baldock is a town in North Hertfordshire famous for its markets. Conference and meeting delegates can reach Baldock train station in 40 minutes by train from London Kings Cross train station. Both the A505 and the A1(M) serve Baldock, therefore it is an easy destination to reach by car.
Baldock’s high street is your typical high street with the essential amenities from a mixture of independent and nationally recognised stores. The high street is full of history with some beautiful historical buildings, which adds uniqueness to Baldock. The historical buildings are architecturally significant to Baldock as they date back to Roman times, and Baldock has the most grade listed buildings in the district of North Hertfordshire. Understandably it is one of the five towns in Hertfordshire which has been recognised as nationally important by the Council of British Archeology. Knights Templar founded the town back in Roman times, and Baldock’s secondary school The Knights Templar School is named after them.
Not only is Baldock rich in history but there are some beautiful parks too. Avenue Park is a large park surrounded by trees. The park’s leisure facilities cater for Baldock residents, whether to enjoy family activities centred around the play area or organised sport such as football, cricket or bowls. This beautiful green space adds to Baldock’s beauty as it adds to the serenity of Baldock, and allows residents and conference delegates to escape the bustling high street.
Although Baldock is famous for its markets and independent shops, Baldock is also home to nationally recognised stores such as supermarkets like Tesco and Costcutters therefore allows residents to access the essential amenities.
