Hatfield House is a Jacobean house built in 1611, in the grounds of
which survives a wing of the former Royal Palace of Hatfield (circa
1497). It was here that Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood and
where she received the news of her accession to the throne. Guided
tours, in small groups, are arranged for you on Tuesday the 10th of
July, and there will be the opportunity to purchase lunch during the
time when you are not looking around the house.
