Welcome to Hertfordshire - Nice To Meet You

Stunning stately homes, wild days out, cultural escapes and magical memories - Hertfordshire (or Herts as we like to call it) is the perfect place for your next short break in England.

Just 20 minutes from London by train but still far away from the stresses of the big city, our lush, green county is brimming with exciting things to do and some seriously great places to stay. Explore famous sites such as St Albans Cathedral, Hatfield House, Knebworth House, or capture the magic of Harry Potter with a visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. And if you're looking for wild beasts, Roman ruins, sculpture gardens, year-round snow, traditional English villages, 5* luxury or boutique B&Bs, Hertfordshire is the place to be.

We have plenty of ideas for great days out all year round, so take a look at some of our top ten lists and blogs for inspiration, or get in touch on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Share the story, share the adventure…share the magic of Hertfordshire.
