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

Ok im a bit bias as I live here but I kinda live this place. Hatfield house host some amazing events whether its fireworks display to its battle of the proms with its cannons and the spitfire flyby or its history of Henry VIII and knowledge of the queen Elizabeth I or the history of it being bombed during the...

A place to visit any time of the year. Many films have been filmed here including batman and Johnny Depp is a regular visitor with his films and his band. A short way away from Hatfield Station and plenty of car parking space. This is a Hertfordshire "Must See" I went to the Fire Works display in November last year... More

Took the kids and visited the farm, tractor ride and train ride and feeding the animals enjoyed by all. Bloody hollow adventure was great too and kept the kids well entertained. The negative for me was the restaurant/cafe experience. Went in with two kids and had to walk around the food counters to see what was available with lots of... More

Go when the monthly antiques on. You can plonk the man in the cafe and shop. Lots of lovely little shops in stable yard. All good, not least the house! pick up a yard card for discounts. Slickly run cafe, nothing like your National Trust plastic fork type place. Busy friendly managers oversee this cafe, with lots of different styles... More

Located a short drive from historic St. Albans, this home is well worth a visit. It is a very imposing residence and I believe still used by the family at times. The rooms are stately, beautifully decorated and often with interesting collections. Ceilings are beautifully decorated. Artworks are superb. One large room with armour of the knights was amazing. The... More
