Hoddesdon is a market town in Hertfordshire. Conference and meeting delegates can reach Hoddesdon within 40 minutes by train from London Liverpool Street station. Hoddesdon is situated near the A10 and M25, therefore it is an easy destination to reach by car.
Hoddesdon is steeped with history as it’s famous for its Rye House Plot. Rye House Plot was where assassinators gathered at a moat by the Rye House area to plan Charles II of England’s murder as he was due to travel past. The high street is bursting with Tudor style buildings which are occupied by a mix of independent and nationally recognised stores.
Hoddesdon holds a strong economy, partially due to the industrial estate in Pindar Road. Pindar Road is home to many businesses that contributes greatly to the Hertfordshire economy. The newly opened Ambition Broxbourne Business Centre is based in Pindar Road; a building with high quality managed workspace to support start-up businesses and SMEs, therefore showing that Hoddesdon is the perfect place to base your business whether you’re big or small.
Hoddesdon’s high street has recently been regenerated, with the Tower Centre shopping centre being knocked down and replaced with supermarket chain, Morrisons and a whole host of independent and chain stores. Local residents are encouraged to shop at the market which occurs every Wednesday and Friday, in order to support local business, but there is also the option to shop at local supermarkets as Hoddesdon is home to Aldi, Morrisons, Tesco, ASDA and Sainsbury’s.
Hoddesdon is also adjacent to Dobbs Weir, a greenery space in the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority which provides a place of serenity away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. Dobbs Weir offers peaceful walks along the river with some quaint pubs dotted along the way for you to pop in and have a quick drink or a bite to eat.
