Views from Herts to brighten your day

A few words from Visit Herts during #COVID19

Dear friends,

We know that there is a huge amount of uncertainty right now. We also know that the reason you usually come to our channels is for a dose of inspiration, a hint of escapism, and ideas on the very best ways to spend your free time across our county.

Making a trip out of the house to explore will be difficult for many of you over the coming weeks, and we want you to stay safe. But, here at Visit Herts we are still committed to sharing with you everything that’s great about our little corner of the world.

That’s why you may see some changes to the content we’ll be posting; with more of a focus on supporting our local businesses, sharing a few things to look forward to, and providing a little distraction during times where you may be stuck indoors.

We’ll be championing Hertfordshire's independent businesses, keeping you up to date with great stories from our community – and above all else – continuing to share incredible photos from across the county which we hope will put a smile on your face.

Got ideas of content you’d like to see from us? Maybe a local hero you think deserves a special mention? Get in touch at

Our number one priority is, and always will be, sharing Hertfordshire's unique story. A story that we are all part of. So, look after your neighbours, put the kettle on, and let’s work through this together.

Stay safe,

Deirdre Wells OBE – Chief Executive, Visit Herts

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.
