About Baldock

Baldock is a charming and historic market town that’s one of the county’s oldest settlements. It marks the intersection of two ancient roads, one of which is Icknield Way, that’s said to be the oldest road in Britain. 

Baldock’s train station has direct trains to London Kings Cross, Cambridge and Brighton, making this a great place to live for commuters. Baldock is on the Great North Road and has always been popular with travellers which hasn’t changed today. There’s a fantastic mix of properties available in Baldock and it has a good amount of detached, semi-detached, terraces, and flats available. The rental market is strong, especially among younger people. The town’s beautiful buildings cover the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian periods.

There’s exceptional schooling here with Weston Way Nursery School, Hartsfield Junior Mixed and Infant School, St Mary’s School and The Knights Templar School (a government-funded academy) for secondary and sixth form age school students.

Baldock has an array of exciting restaurants near its high street too. Contemporary dining is offered at several Indian restaurants, namely, Chilli Lounge, Bombay Bistro and Baldock Spice, kebabs at Baldock Grill, and modern British food at The White Horse, George IV offers a family-friendly service and is just a short walk from the centre of town.

There are plenty of good shopping opportunities with high street stores, independent stores and supermarkets to choose from. Independent businesses include Days Bakery of Ashwell, which is found next to Chapmans the local butchers, there’s the Italian deli and café, Delizia, serving paninis, cheese, and gelati and the independent Café Luna.

There are fun events to enjoy in this family town, and these events bring in people from the surrounding villages. The beer and music festivals are particularly popular.

Baldock is great for families and there are many play areas within the town including Avenue Park. This is an enclosed park with a play area, pavilion, football pitch, cricket, bowls, a splash pad (in the summer) and more. Knights Templar Sports Centre also has a gym, sports hall, 3G pitch, tennis courts and many workout classes a week.

The brewing industry has always been big in Baldock, and it paid for the Georgian buildings that you see within the town today. Its malts were of great quality and so were exported to London, but the local brewers also did well here. People travelling between the north and London would stop in the town creating lots of coaching inns.

Apple Cottage Cider is created by a family-run business that’s been producing cider in Baldock for over 15 years. The 330-year-old Orange Tree pub sells this cider in Baldock, as well as ales from Buntingford Brewery, which is another local business.

Baldock Museum is run by volunteers and marks Baldock’s history, which is an Ancient era as it was founded around 1148. The area dates further back than this though, as there’s evidence that it was the town that was founded upon both Iron Age and Roman settlements.

The lovely villages near Baldock, include Ashwell, Guilden Morden, Steeple Morden, Eyeworth, Hinxworth, Newnham, Weston, Edworth, Eyeworth, Dunton and Odsey.
