Hertingfordbury is a small village and civil parish in the East Hertfordshire District of Hertfordshire, England, close to the county town of Hertford.

Hertingfordbury lies one mile west of Hertford on the A414 road. Ribbon development along that road has yet to reach the village, which retains a rural character. The village straddles the River Mimram, on which was built a water mill in the 18th century, and lies just north of the River Lea. The northern boundary of the village is Panshanger Park, with its Great Oak, considered by some to be the oldest oak in England.

The parish includes the hamlet of Letty Green to the west, with its grade II listed deconsecrated St John’s Church.

There is a traditional village primary school in Birch Green known as Hertingfordbury Cowper. The original school was a classic Victorian school house, which now has some modern extensions. There are children at the school who are fourth generation attendees.
