Newgate Street is a small village in the Welwyn Hatfield district of Hertfordshire, approximately six miles south-west of Hertford with a population of around 400. 

Only 30 mins from London yet set amongst thousands of acres of woodland and countryside, the village sits on the Hertfordshire Way and miles of footpaths, bike trails and bridleways. 

It has two lovely pubs (The Crown and The Coach & Horses), a Mediterranean restaurant and a 19C church. 

On a major cycling thoroughfare, the village is a entry point to many of the county's bike trails.

For kids and adults alike, there’s the usual baking and growing, but there’s also crafts, art, photography and, if you really can’t find anything, there’s the after show party with burgers, booze, ice-cream and a special guest!
