We hope you will join us on our terrace during you stay this August. It’s a great spot to soak up the sun or relax on a warm evening, enjoying a great selection of drinks from our Element Bar & Kitchen. If you have the time, we also recommend you get out and about to discover the delights of the local area. Here’s a few highlights for August.
Starting out in Hatfield, let’s take a look at Hatfield Park. In addition to the spectacular house, make sure you visit the parkland and gardens. There are three different marked woodland walks, which make a great way to explore the park, with the longest covering three miles. Perfect for getting out and about in the summer sunshine. You can discover more about the walks
The park also hosts a couple of events this month. Immersion Theatre presents Twelfth Night on August 3rd, a highly amusing adaptation of Shakespeare’s well known comedy. Immersion Theatre have developed a reputation for producing first class, fast-paced adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays, and are highly regarded with many accolades. This production is Shakespeare as it was meant to be: interactive, fun, and highly accessible for all. More information and tickets can be found HERE.
For something completely different, how about trading the glow sticks for a conductor’s baton with Classic Ibiza? A magical selection of dance music’s most iconic tracks, all reinvented by the Urban Soul Orchestra who have worked with the very best in the industry, including Groove Armada, Nightmares on Wax, Robert Miles and Octave One. A perfect way to spend a night! Taking place on August 18th, you will find tickets and more HERE.
The Working Horses Experience is a wonderful chance to spend some time with horses on the estate. Under the supervision of expert handlers, attendees will learn how to interact and work with these magnificent animals, extracting timber from the woodland using sustainable, historic methods. But it’s not all work! Enjoy a freshly prepared picnic with a glass of Champagne, overlooking the beautiful River Lea as is runs through the Hatfield Estate. After lunch, it’s time to relax and enjoy a carriage ride around the ancient woodlands and parklands. Book now for August 13th, and discover tickets and more info HERE.
If history is your thing, then you can push back in time with a trip to nearby St Albans for the Verulamium Museum. Adjacent to Verulamium Park, this award-winning museum showcases a remarkable collection of Roman artefacts, providing insights into the city’s Roman past. The museum houses mosaics, pottery, and other fascinating exhibits. A must for fans of ancient history! Find out more HERE.
We also recommend the Roman Theatre of Verulamium. Located to the southwest of Verulamium Park, the Roman Theatre, is a fascinating historical site with well-preserved seating terraces. It’s one of the hidden gems of St Albans and a testament to its ancient past.
