At Arriva we know travel and we know Buntingford, so take a few moments and read through our carefully created guide to attractions and travelling in this great town.


Buntingford is a small market town and it lies on the River Rib and on the Roman road Ermine Street. As a result of its location, it grew mainly as a staging post with many coaching inns and has an 18th-century one cell prison known as 'The Cage' by the ford at the end of Church Street. It is Hertfordshire's smallest town.  The town has a large number of Georgian and mediaeval buildings, such as Buntingford almshouses, Buntingford Manor House and the Red House. Buntingford was a stop-over on what was the main route between London and Cambridge, now the A10.
