April is here and we’re starting to enjoy the longer days and brighter weather here in Hatfield and Hertfordshire in general. We’ve a few things that may interest you this month if you want to get out and about in the local area.
Hatfield House is a must-see in Hatfield. This beautiful historic house and parkland has links to Elizabeth I and holds a vast collection of remarkable period art and furnishings. The grounds make for a charming day out in good weather, and Hatfield House play host to several events a month. Here’s our pick for April.
CJ’s Birds of Prey Displays are delighted to be visiting again on 15th April with their majestic birds of prey. Displays will include a variety of birds including the Crowned Hawk Eagle, the stunning Snowy Owl and more.
