Things to do in Hatfield

Hatfield House is undoubtably the town’s most famous attraction. A grand, elegant 17th century Jacobean house, the Royal Palace of Hatfield – childhood residence of Queen Elizabeth I – used to be present on the site but only part remains nowadays. The house, gardens, park and woodlands are open to the public during selected times of the year. Elsewhere, the Mill Green Museum and Mill was voted the county’s ‘hidden gem’ in the 2017 Hertfordshire Tourism Awards and is well worth a trip as a working watermill dating back to the 1600s.

If a window into the past is not necessarily your cup of tea, however, then the Galleria shopping centre could be exactly what you’re after, boasting more than 80 designer stores where you can browse and buy to your heart’s content.
