One of the earliest mentions of Bosci de Boreham (Wood of Boreham), is in 1188: "In 1188 Pope Clement granted to the kitchen of the monastery the whole land of Elstree.

Since the 1920s, the town has been home to several film studios and many shots of its streets are included in final cuts of 20th century British films. This earned it the nickname of the "British Hollywood". Whilst most of these studios have now closed, two still remain. Many well-known films including The Dam Busters (1955), Star Wars (1977-), Moby Dick (1956), Summer Holiday (1963), Dr Zhivago (1965)', 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and, The Shining (1980) starring Jack Nicholson, some of the Indiana Jones films were filmed at the former Associated British Studios in Shenley Road. These were partly demolished in the 1980s to make way for a Tesco Extra supermarket on one side and an office block complex on the other.
