“A pleasant riverside walk on good paths”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

You can use the Bengeo playing fields carpark on a Sunday for free and then walk along the river in the pleasant countryside between Hertford and Ware. The Kingsmead Nature Reserve is alongside the path for much of the route. Both Ware and Hertford are interesting historic towns in their own right with plenty of pubs and restaurants.

“Beautiful.”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The river Lea is lovely for walks and seeing a lot of wild life. There are some very pretty barges that are parked a long the banks. I like going down there for a walk and feeding the ducks and swans and other birds.

“Lovely walks and views”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Ideal place to walk or bike ride along the tow paths of the River Lea. Bird watching in Stanstead Abbotts or just taking in the views, with a busy passage of barges. Lots of pubs to frequent along route. You can cycle from Hertford To London if feeling fit.
