Set in the shallow valley of the River Rib, Buntingford resonates its heritage through the numerous listed buildings in the area, some dating back through the centuries to the 1600s adding to this town’s classical English charm.
Just off the High Street lies the Layston Court Gardens originally belonging to Layston Court House, which was built in the early 15th century. These stunning gardens are often referred to as “a quiet oasis in the middle of the town” offering a peaceful place to relax and unwind just a few steps away from the town centre. There is a wide variety of shops on the High Street ranging from small, quaint shops to larger businesses catering for your everyday needs with bakers, supermarkets, chemists, cafes and the nearby Pearce's farm shop. In keeping with the charter, there is a market every Monday on Market Hill offering a range of fresh fruit, produce and clothing.
