About The Venue
Steeped in over 400 years of history, with gardens that offer 40 acres of tranquillity. The Elizabethan and Jacobean style house plays home to centuries of historical treasures collected by the Cecil family.
Famously, Hatfield House was the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth I, whose iconic Rainbow Portrait overlooks the stunning Marble Hall. Take a peaceful stroll through Hatfield Park and you’ll discover the very spot where Elizabeth learnt of her succession to the throne in 1558.
The picture-perfect Gardens date from early 17th Century, when Robert Cecil employed John Tradescant the Elder to collect plants from all over Europe from his new home. The trees, bulbs, plants and fruit trees, which had never before been grown in England, have crafted the inspiring and fragrant gardens you can explore and enjoy today.
The Stable Yard
Explore the Stable Yard, an area of Hatfield Park which used to house the royal horses is now home to a cluster of independent boutiques and truly delicious dining.
