Easily accessible from London by train, Hertfordshire is a fairly small county dotted with quickly expanding modern towns and villages, which increasingly threaten to overtake the pastoral farmland. The county is notable for being home of St Albans, a historic Georgian town dating back to the Roman era. The county's iconic Hatfield House is considered one of Britain's most important stately homes. Over the last few decades the region has served as headquarters to many of the country's biggest and best-known companies, and is also a thriving center of the film industry, housing some of Britain's major film studio complexes.
