Both of these stately homes are in the county of Hertfordshire, a short distance north of London.  If these houses look familiar, it is because they have been used in countless films from everything from historical epics to Batman.

Hatfield House is privately owned by the Cecil family for over 400 years and is perhaps best remembered as the home of Queen Elizabeth I in her youth and it still has he ornate Tudor style formal gardens as well as much Tudor interior decoration.

Hatfield House has wonderful English gardens and a vast estate including a church, museums and an armoury of historic weapons.  You might even meet the present day Marquess who still lives in the house with his family.

A short car ride away from Hatfield is Knebworth House, which is of an altogether different style.  It’s imposing grandeur was notably used in the Batman series of films as the home of Bruce Wayne.  However, the real-life history of this splendid home is much more interesting.

Knebworth House and Country Park have been in the hands of the Lytton family since 1490, and they have seen monarchs come and go.  One of Knebworth’s most famous resident is the Victorian writer Edward Bulwar Lytton who amongst other things wrote the phrase “The pen is mightier than the sword”.

These two houses with their marvellous grounds complement each other wonderfully and make for an unforgettable day out.
