Does your family love animals? Then Hatfield Park Farm is the place for you! Meet new animals, have great fun in the adventure park or simply stroll around the beautiful grounds.

The History of Hatfield Park
The perfect setting of the National Trust's Hatfield House & Park holds a deep & fascinating history. This fine Jacobean House originally belonged to Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury in 1611. The House joined onto the site of an old Palace in Hartfield.

Wonder around this historic house as if it were you own! Walk with grace up and down the Grand Staircase. Notice it's fine carving? Gaze up at the rare stained glass window in the private chapel and scour the house & gardens for all of the magical momentos collected by the Earl throughout his life, hundreds of years ago. 

The history gets richer and richer when you learn the full story of Henry VIII's links to the House & Gardens. He actually owned the deer park and the original palace! Making this a Tudor Old Palace! If you aren't familiar with Henry the VIII he's the one of the most famous figures in British history, whether you know him for his six wives, his broken relationship with the pope or his famous daughter Queen Elizabeth I! The palace was actually the place used to house his 3 children Edward, Elizabeth and Mary. 

Whether it's Earls, monarchs, or Marquises, this home & acres of park land are enriched with wonderful historical tales, fascinating items & endless views of the beautiful hertfordshire countryside. 
Animals & Wildlife
