Rickmansworth station opened in 1887 as part of the Metropolitan Railway, linking towns and villages in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Middlesex with London. Today the station runs trains northwest to Aylesbury and southeast to London Marylebone, taking commuters to the capital in less than half an hour. The station is managed by London Underground, and National Rail services share the same platforms as the Metropolitan Line between Amersham and Chesham in Buckinghamshire and Aldgate in the City of London. The narrow High Street has a good mix of big names and independents, and is a short walk to the south - head down Station Road, passing under the railway bridge. To the south of the town is The Aquadrome park and nature reserve, with two lakes created from gravel pits dug to build the original Wembley Stadium. It's a popular venue for watersports, and home to walking trails as well as a variety of wildlife.
