Newgate Street is a village near Cuffley, in the Welwyn Hatfield district of Hertfordshire, England. It is approximately six miles south-west of Hertford and has a population of 400.

The village has an Anglican church, a school (Ponsbourne St Mary's), an Italian restaurant (Nelito's), two pubs (The Crown and The Coach and Horses) and a hotel (Ponsbourne Park Hotel). There is also a small town hall, two outdoor tennis courts and a 9-hole golf course belonging to the hotel.

Originally in the Manor of Tolmers, the present Tolmers Park House dates from 1761. Since World War I it has been used as a military hospital, a girls' boarding school, a geriatric hospital and has now been converted to luxury apartments. Part of the estate became Tolmers Scout Camp in 1940. The house lies just to the South-West of the village.
