Elstree Stars Walk of Fame
Hollywood has nothing on Elstree and Borehamwood.
Location: Elstree and Borehamwood Station
Description: Elstree and Borehamwood have long been connected with a great history of iconic film and television production. In 2011 they began unveiling their version of Hollywoods Walk of Fame, by unveiling pavement based stars to actors who graced the local studios. First Impressions, the film studio's heritage group began consulting the work in 2010.
Stars include Reg Varney, Harrison Ford, Jim Henson, Patrick Macnee, Patrick McGoohan and Sean Connery.
Nearby MGM studios are now long gone, so it's a fitting memorial to an entertaining past.
