My husband and I visited Hatfield House on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It was a pleasant enough trip - busy but to be expected. However, we were shocked by the attitude of the employee who sold us out tickets. Having never been before we asked for '2 adults' and were met with a surly stare. To which we asked for... More

This was my second visit to Hatfield House and I went inside the "new" house this time. The rooms are crammed full of art and the staircases are amazing. They have lots of the original pictures you will know well if you are interested in the Tudor period. For the size of the house, there are not as many rooms... More

Lovely house, great grounds, the kids love the farm and love playing in the park. You can grab an ice cream for the kids or a coffee for yourself in the cafe.

We enter the house and oh wow the ceiling is amazing and things just got better. You can get a guided tour but we chose to follow the guide book. The history is great and the staff are so knowledgeable and more than happy to explain things. We didn't visit gardens this day the weather was quite cold although through... More

Visited early one Wednesday morning just as the house was opening. The house was utterly beautiful and great care had been taken to enhance the visitors experience with lots of information about each room, interactive screens etc. All of the guides were extremely chatty, friendly and most importantly passionate about where they were. The grounds were stunning and it was... More

Easy day trip from King's Cross Station to Hatfield House. The train is only about a 20 minute ride. The entrance fee to Hatfield House and grounds was 15GBP. It's a huge estate to wander around before even going into the House. It was quite something to see the original paintings of Elizabeth l and other historical figures that I... More

I spent most of a day at Hatfield House - exhausting but worthwhile. The woodland walk was much more enjoyable than I expected because there was so much to see. I stopped counting butterflies when I got to 50! Although the on site cafe has quite a limited menu, the food was good value for money. The house itself is... More
