Worth a visit

Great farmer's market on the first Saturday of the month. Local produce at reasonable prices. The award winning venison pies are worth looking out for.

Went to an Elizabethan Banquet in the old palace. The event was very well organised from start to finish. The Hall was beautifully decorated for Christmas, the waiting staff were efficient, the food reasonably good and the themed show during the meal highly entertaining (although let down by the weak and at times barely audible sound system which really needs...

We visited this beautiful historic Jacobean house on a hot August day and boy did we have a great time. We took a picnic and im glad we did as the restaurant was so full that peeps were having to wait eons for a seat. There are great shops all selling high standard merchandise with of course an historic theme.... More

Visited the Stable Yard Shops partly in response to marketing campaign which shows lovely shop interiors and items for sale. First impressions are great; this is a really lovely setting. However, the shop merchandise is not top quality and displayed in a very cluttered fashion. They just haven't got this right for their intended clientele. Take a look at any... More

Didn't even get in as a result of (in my opinion) poor organisation. Well advertised so they must have expected people, but signage that it was full poor until after you had travelled and then queued (in our case for close to an hour) only to be turned around by Police metres from the entrance. Terrible organisation!

Queued for over an hour to get from the A1(M) to parking at the house for no apparent reason other than everyone had to go single file into the carpark. Serious lack of thought gone into how to get people in. Please sort this out for next year as once we got into the event and got over the journey... More

We went out for the day to Hatfield House. I remember going when I was in Primary School - but it is now a couple of decades later so I thought it was about time I get back and check the house out! We went as a family, and had a lovely day. The house itself was beautiful, really amazing... More
