Kings Langley station lies just outside the boundary of the M25 motorway in Hertfordshire, serving the villages of Kings Langley, Abbots Langley and Hunton Bridge. Built in 1839, the station was previously known as Kings Langley & Abbots Langley before taking on its current name in 1974. Half-hourly services depart to London Euston in the south, and to Tring and Milton Keynes in the north - additional rush hour services run to Birmingham New Street and Coventry, along with a single weekday morning service to Crewe. Today, Kings Langley boasts a number of historic sites and buildings just a short hop from the station, including the famous St. Albans Abbey ruins and the 14th Century Church of All Saints, which once housed the body of King Richard II. The town also gets a namecheck in William Shakespeare's Richard III, which has a scene set in the garden of the palace at Langley.
