Borehamwood in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... but interestingly I had never been there. I moved there 9 months ago to live with my boyfriend and I actually quite like living there. Fair enough, its not a palace but neither is it a ghetto .... I am originally from Edmonton which has seriously gone downhill, stabbings every other week, saliva and doggie doo doo all over the pavement, abandoned sofa's and broken down things everywhere you look ..... so life in Borehamwood is not so bad at all. We have the countryside on our doorstep, and Shenley Road has excellent charity shops (except for Norwood, that's rubbish!). Borehamwood also has the film studios, and a great little museum just of... more

Ok there are some intellectually challenged people out and about in Borehamwood but generally its not as bad as its made out to be. I used to call it "Boringwood" but interestingly I had never been there. I moved there 9 months ago to live with my boyfriend and I actually quite like living there. Fair enough, its not a palace but neither is it a ghetto .... I am originally from Edmonton which has seriously gone downhill, stabbings every other week, saliva and doggie doo doo all over the pavement, abandoned sofa's and broken down things everywhere you look ..... so life in Borehamwood is not so bad at all.

what can i say? lived in borehamwood all my life so i'm not just having a dig at it from my ivory tower but...i left school in the late eighties and it wasn't such a bad place then...but that was an era when many girls thought that having a child at fifteen was a good idea, and let's face it, we are reaping what we have sown... because all of those illegitimate late eighties sprogs (the shazza's and chelle's)have turned into the cheap tracksuit attired scum we usually find ploughing shenley rd with a brace of bull terriers on a saturday lunch time...the sort of youngster that thinks if he/she can watch x factor and afford a carrier bag of cut price "uri geller" Read the complete review

Having spent the weekend dog-sitting at my parents I felt it appropriate to share a review of the town i grew up in.. the one, the only BOREHAMWOOD. Now Borehamwood gets a bad press. The two available reviews on Dooyoo paint a very negative picture of my home town, so I thought a balanced review of Borehamwood might be in order. For those who do not know, Borehamwood is a town of about 35000 people in south Hertfordshire. Some of Borehamwood is in the borough of Hertsmere whilst a small part is in the borough of Barnet. It sits inbetween St Albans, Watford, Barnet and Mill Hill and although once a small hamelt of the larger village of Elstree, ... Read the complete review

First of all I would just like to say that I have been living here all my life and I reckon I?ve got experience of this town more than anyone who has posted their opinion. Point one, Borehamwood is not the favourite place for you to live as the high street and Leeming road which is a small street of shops always gets hundreds of teenagers gathering there at night always causing trouble. Recently a bus that passes through Leeming road has stopped its service through the road, take a moment and see if you can guess. Well the teenagers that hang around think that it would be funny to smash the windows of the buses every time they passed. Now if that doesn?t put you ... Read the complete review

I am very lucky to be writing this opinion on the basis that I work in Borehamwood, and do not live here, I don’t even live in the county, and if Borehamwood is anything to go by, thankgod for that!!! Boringwood as we call it is the capital of the uk when it comes to unemployment, crime, pollution and long queues in McDonalds. Located in south Herts, on the border with the London borough of Barnet, you might be fooled into thinking it is an attractive area, wrong! Calling this place a dump is a compliment; it’s more like a war-zone. Watford is a few minutes drive away, and if you’ve got any sense, then that’s were most people ... Read the complete review
