This grand country house set among the Great Park in Hatfield, Hertfordshire represents one of the finest examples of Jacobean architecture. An earlier building on the site (only part still exists) was once the Royal Palace of Hatfield and childhood home and favourite residence of Queen Elizabeth I. King Henry’s VIII children, King Edward VI and Queen Elizabeth I spent much of their youth at this palace.
Hatfield House is a popular tourist attraction because of its long relationship with Queen Elizabeth I and displays some of the finest period artefacts in England. The gardens are equally as stunning as the house and covers 42 acres with exotic trees and plants, fountains, herb gardens, and a foot maze.
There are many interesting things to see and many facilities located on the grounds including shops, restaurants, and play area for small children.Ask a Question Get a Quote
