Trains to Knebworth travel through the Hertfordshire countryside before coming to rest in a charming village station. It was something of a latecomer to the network, opening in 1884 - over 30 years after the Great Northern Railway first came through the area. Today Knebworth station is just 35 minutes from London Kings Cross on the East Coast Main Line, and also offers services to Cambridge and Peterborough. Knebworth's original settlement grew up around the area now known as Old Knebworth. Development of the contemporary Knebworth village began in the late 1800s in the wake of the arrival of rail and the subsequent Great North Road. It's mostly residential, but you'll find a few pubs and local shops either side of the railway bridge on Station Road. As well as the surrounding countryside, the area is famous for hosting huge outdoor concerts at Knebworth Park - Queen's final performance in 1986 brought in an estimated 300,000 fans.
