This is Elizabeth the Firsts childhood home. Has the most lovely dog gates to stop the hounds getting upstairs.

We took out American visitors to Hatfield House on Sunday. I think the pricing is about right as parking is free and well marshalled and it is easy to reach just outside London hence no expensive travelling costs or parking fees (£5 at other venues)...More

Very nice visit to Hatfield House the house is so interesting and has an amazing history. The garden were lovely as well, with a few interesting shops in the grounds. The restaurant though was not very good the food was bland and flavourless.

Thank you for the lovely comments about the house and garden. We were disappointed to read that you didn't enjoy the food that was served in the restaurant and we will certainly pass this feedback onto the restaurant manager.
