Twice I have been to a wedding fair at Hatfield House. Plentiful parking and helpful staff. Would love to explore on a normal day, may need wellies though!
Masses to see. Staff in the palace are friendly and knowledgeable. You can go to the shops and cafe area (and loos) without paying an entrance fee (other venues please take note). I have also been several times to 'Folk by the Oak' - one of the best concerts on the folk circuit and very reasonably priced with excellent fireworks... More
Great place to spend a day, the farm is great for the kids, with a great play area called Bloody Hollow with a minature replica of Hatfield House. Great for walking the hounds, you can get lost so easily the park is that big! We have been to the Battle Proms, the summer shows, and best of all we saw... More
The staff take no care when driving around the estate, a lot of local residents walk their dogs over the fields but unfortunately the staff make no consideration for this. My year old pup came within seconds of her young life when the 'Director Of Operations' carried on driving even though he could see the pup was running around, we... More
The gardens were lovely, although a little disapointing, the west garden or whatever that you had to pay extra for were a complete waste of time (literally, NEVER spend that money, you get a couple of chickens and vegetables, a rusty gate overlooking a dingy lake and really long grass), the inside was meh... and then came the resturaunt. IT... More
We visited Hatfield House while staying in London. Great place to visit. The house - The garden - The park - nothing to fault. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The restaurant served some great food all freshly made. Great Location it is 21 miles from central London and the main entrance to Hatfield Park is opposite Hatfield... More
A liitle disappointed that it was not really where Elizabeth 1 lived but still a great old house to visit. When we visited the old hall next door where she may have lived was closed for a wedding.Still agreat day out with afew interesting shops to brouse in.
Very interesting house visit and nice gardens. The Hatfield staff really are very welcoming, discreet, knowledgeable and helpful. Our 8yr old daughter was also kept interested by the quiz questions, and this is not always the case when visiting stately homes etc. We had a carvery lunch and cream tea in the restaurant and the quality was excellent. Overall, a... More
My wife and I visited here after being given an experience day voucher which one of the 'days out' included a helicopter ride for 2 and afternoon tea and entry to Hatfield House and gardens. We live about 45 minutes away and had never been here before. After driving down the A1 and pulling off at the brown sign listing... More
Great day-out if you're local to Hatfield or a Hertfordshirer. Actually no fee to walk parts of the grounds, shops & restaurant. Good restaurant with quality food, but poorly organised. Extensive & varied gardens & grounds. Hertfordshire county show held annually & well worth a go.
