About Hertfordshire

Population: 1,119,800

Hertfordshire is a county full of contrasts that blend together to create a superb quality of life for residents and visitors alike.

Situated in the south east of England, the county is about 20 miles from London but still retains its own unique identity, with thriving modern towns and picturesque villages set in beautiful countryside.

The balance of these contrasts is an unrivalled atmosphere and quality of life which attracts both people and businesses to the county.

In November 2013, a national Quality of Life Index listed Hertfordshire as the third-best place to live in the UK.

  1. I am curious – I had always understood that Montserrat was named after the famous Montserrat with its monastery (Santa Maria de Montserrat) and saw-tooth mountains near Barcelona, not this other Montserrat (which seems to be far from famous, and from what little I can find about it on the web, does not have any such mountains). Have the historians changed their minds, or is it just that twinning with the Valencia Montserrat more convenient (because it is a town, not a monastery and a mountain)?
