Split by a railway – and by two historical periods – Hatfield is a town of contrasts.
On the one hand, you’ve got the Old Saxon town. It’s quaint. Charming. With a Royal pedigree, no less: the magnificent Hatfield House, home to the Marquess of Salisbury. In this part of town the meandering streets and characterful homes are perfect for lazy walks on lazy afternoons.
But then, just a short walk away, there’s the new, post-war town. It’s modern, vibrant, and bustling with activity. Visit contemporary art galleries, the theatre, and music venues – and take in everything the town has to offer. As if that wasn’t enough, you’re only a 20-minute train ride from Kings Cross, London.
In short: you’re never short of something to do in Hatfield.
