Most helpful review

The town centre has improved over the last 6 months, more shops open. Nightlife is non-existent unless you want a pub, no wine bar/music venue unless you want to party at university events. Public transport is unreliable and poor in the sense that the buses work on a 30 minute basis in South Hatfield and stop as early as 9pm, as for weekends; not even the the most reliable 614 works on a Sunday. So you are left to walk from the train station or pay for incredibly expensive taxis. The Galleria is a decent place to shop for reduced price clothing and homewares but the town centre has only a New Look and a Peacocks, enough said! The Galleria also provides an adequate service for places to eat, all high street big chains i.e. Nandos, McDonalds,Prezzo,Chiquito etc If you are from African/Caribbean heritage there are few hair salons and product shops, but do not let looks deceive you, the one next to the the school wear shop is better for customer service and pricing.

Cost of living is okay - but then again I am in Uni accommodation The Galleria is good for eating out. Plenty of good restaurants. Unfortunately there are basically no good clothes shops for a good bit of retail therapy. I don't use public transport that much but apparently the Uno buses are not very reliable.

Hatfield is cheap to live in and it is well located being only 15 minutes away from St.Albans and less than 30 minutes to Kings Cross in London. However the only aspect of nightlife is the forum and club Dehav on campus and eating out is severely limited. On the plus side Hatfield does have the Galleria and some fantastic outlet shops. The public transport is the worst that I have seen in England, however, there are plenty of bicycle paths and everything you will need is in a quick walking distance so public transport is not necessary. The only exception are the University shuttle buses which are free in between the campuses.
