Borehamwood is a town in southern Hertfordshire, England, about 12 miles (19 km) from Charing Cross. Borehamwood has 31,074 residents and is part of the London commuter belt. It is known for its film and television studios as Elstree Studios.
Due to the presence of production studios, the town became known as one of the main films, and later television centres in the UK. As a result of the Second World War, the town’s population greatly increased. As a result, large areas of council housing were built for displaced Londoners, many of which are now privately owned. Since the town has fast train connections to central London, it has become a predominantly residential area. Admiralty began constructing highly secret high-performance electronic digital computers in Borehamwood in 1946, initially for real-time gunnery control, and later for surface-to-air guided weapons and missiles, and for GCHQ’s cryptography and code-breaking computers.
Over the last five years, Borehamwood has seen hundreds of new homes built. The construction of two more developments is underway, and more are expected. Additionally, there are many retail shops, hotels, restaurants, offices, and light industries in the town. The Elstree Studios hotels serve mostly tourists, TV show viewers, and London visitors that are attracted by the nearby location and the considerably lower hotel rates.
Elstree & Borehamwood railway station is located on the west side of Borehamwood (TfL Zone 6) and is served by trains operated by Govia Thameslink Railway on the Thameslink route. Bus number 107 runs through the town from New Barnet to Edgware and back, while bus number 292 runs into northwest London for London Sovereign for London buses. There is a bus service run by Uno (bus company) that stops in Borehamwood between Hatfield and Stanmore, and one that goes to Watford. The company provides bus services to other parts of Hertfordshire. About 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the town is the M25 motorway, which crosses the A1 to the east.
