Why live in Royston?

Royston is popular with people who work in Cambridge, Luton and London as they’re an easy commute from this town and its nearby villages. The A1 and M11 are easily accessible, and the train station allows quick access to Cambridge (20 minutes) and London (40 minutes). 

There are various housing options available within Royston, and, with plenty of good schools in the area, it’s a popular choice for families. The town has a good mix of property styles, with modern family homes tending to be found just outside of the town centre, which has much older, period properties. There are many beautiful villages nearby too. 

Dating back to the 12th century, Royston is steeped in history. It has its own Grade I listed cave carved out of chalk, and the Royse Stone, which has stood at a crossroads in the town for 900 years. 

Therfield Heath Nature Reserve overlooks the town and gives beautiful views over the neighbouring countryside. It’s a lovely place for walking and also has an 18-hole golf course.

Superb estate agent - helpful and supportive. Got us onto the market quickly, and we sold within a week. When our purchase fell through, they managed the chain below us, and we were able to find a new house to buy without the chain collapsing. Always friendly and professional - could not recommend them more highly.

A Bradford

Robert and the team worked really hard for us. We lost 2 sales due to no fault of theirs and almost gave up but they kept at it and we finally sold the property much to our delight. Communication was great throughout and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others. Thank you!

A Parrish

I had a really good experience working with Robert and Kirsty from Country Properties Royston. I felt well informed and found them transparent, responsive and professional. A great team - thanks for all of your help!

London Luton and London Stansted airports are both within an hour’s drive of Royston so this is a great base for travel further afield too. 

There’s a market here twice a week and many pubs, restaurants, takeaways and coffee shops. It’s a thriving town with all the amenities you’d expect to find, but with the additional benefit of the beautiful rural countryside. 

Therfield Heath Nature Reserve (also known as Royston Heath) overlooks the Royston from a hill to the south-west and has impressive views, woodland footpaths, and the rare Pasque flower can be found here between March and May. It’s a stunning area offering beautiful country walks, as well as an 18-hole golf course.

There’s plenty of sports clubs in the town, including the Tennis Club, Hockey Club, Golf Club and Royston Karate. Royston Town Football Club was founded in 1875 and is the third oldest club in Hertfordshire. 

Priory Memorial Gardens is a large park in Royston that was developed in the 1950s and has been awarded a Green Flag. It has play areas, a bandstand, memorial areas, a sensory garden and more, and can be found just a few minutes from the centre of town. 

Dating back to the 12th century, there’s plenty of history to discover here. The Royse (Roisia) Stone has stood at a crossroads in the town for over 900 years and was said to have been the base for a cross that was put up by Lady Roisia when the town was founded. 

Royston has its very own cave, which was discovered in 1742. Royston Cave is carved out of chalk and can be found beneath the central crossroads of the town. Medieval-style carvings can be seen within it, and it’s open to the public at certain times each week. Royston Cave is now a Grade I listed building. 

There’s a mix of property styles to be found here; the older period properties tend to be found in the more historic town centre, with more modern family homes located in other areas as you head out towards the villages.
