Visit to HATFIELD HOUSE
Wednesday 29 May 2019

A coach outing leaving the Funky Bear Pub in Hill Village Road B75 5HL at 8.30am prompt to visit Hatfield House, Hertfordshire with return at about 6.30pm. The cost of the outing is £43 per person.

The cost does not include food, but there is catering for various requirements at the house.

Hatfield House is set in a large park, the Great Park, on the eastern side of the town of Hatfield. The present Jacobean house was built in 1611 byRobert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury, who was the Chief Minister to King James I and has been the home of the Cecil family ever since. Superb examples of Jacobean craftmanship can be seen throughout the House, such as the grand staircase with its fine carving, and the rare stained glass in the private chapel. The estate includes extensive grounds and surviving parts of an earlier palace. The private gardens will be open to view. The house is currently the home of the 7th Marquess of Salisbury.
