Kings Langley Walks
This attractive Hertfordshire based village has some nice canal and country trails to try. The settlement is also close to the Chilterns where there are numerous walking routes available.
This circular walk from the village visits Kings Langley Common and a particularly lovely section of the Grand Union Canal which runs past the eastern side of the village.
The walk starts on the green space on the common and then heads east through the village to link up with the canal. You can follow the towpath south passing weirs, locks and a small fishing lake. The route then heads west along part of the Hertfordshire Way and then north to pass the site of the former Royal Palace and the Rudolf Steiner School. From here it is a short strol back to the common where the walk finishes.
The route passes very close to Kings Langley train station at its south eastern tip. This could make an alternative start point if you are coming by public transport.

The Rose and Crown is a good choice for some post walk refreshment. They serve good quality food and have a nice courtyard to sit out in during the summer months. There's a cosy interior too with open fires and wooden beams. You can find them at 60 High St, WD4 9HT.
Further Information and Other Local Ideas
To the west of the village there's a series of nice trails around the pretty Chipperfield Common to try.
