Hemel Hempstead Car Hire

Hemel Hempstead  is a town in Hertfordshire in the East of England, 38.6 km to the north west of London and part of the Greater London Urban Area.  The population at the 2001 Census was 81,143 (but now estimated at around 89,000 by Hertfordshire County Council).  Developed after World War II as a new town, it has existed as a settlement since the 8th century and was granted its town charter by King Henry VIII in 1539.  It is part of the district of Dacorum and the Hemel Hempstead constituency.

Hemel Hempstead experiences an oceanic climate  similar to almost all of the United Kingdom.

Hemel is famous for its "Magic Roundabout" (officially called the Moor End roundabout, or "The Plough Roundabout" from a former adjacent public house), an interchange at the end of the town centre (Moor End), where traffic from six routes meet. Traffic is able to circulate in both directions around what appears to be a main central roundabout (and formerly was such), with the normal rules applying at each of the six mini-roundabouts encircling this central reservation. It is a misconception that the traffic flows the 'wrong' way around the inner roundabout; as it is not in fact a roundabout at all, and as such no roundabout rules apply to it. It was the first such circulation system in Britain.
