Hertford Castle Hertford is a charming Hertfordshire town with many fine, old buildings and the remains of Hertford Castle. Hertford Castle was a Royal Palace for 300 years. The gatehouse to the castle still stands, while the remains of the castle can be walked around.

The River Lee (or Lea) runs through Hertford on its way to London and it is joined in Hertford by three other rivers, the River Mimram, the River Beane and the River Rib. A canal called the Lee Navigation runs south from Hertford and barges can be hired for pleasure use. There are many good walks along the rivers and canals in and around Hertford.

Hertford is home to Hertfordshire County Council while the University of Hertfordshire's business school is based at Ball's Park, on the outskirts of the town. The main beer producer of Hertfordshire, McMullens, is based in the town.
