Tring is a town in Hertfordshire, England.

Get in[edit]

The main train line from London Euston to Milton Keynes stops at Tring Station. The station is a couple of miles out of the town so you will need to arrange transport from the station into Tring. During the week day commute you can get a bus, otherwise it will be a taxi.

You can also get a bus from Watford or Hemel Hempstead to Aylesbury. There is also a bus to Luton and Dunstable.

Tring is close to the A41, and very accessible by car.
