Set in 250 acres of beautiful rolling Hertfordshire countryside with 28 acres of Formal Gardens, Knebworth House has been to the Lytton family for over 19 generations, making for an extraordinary walk through 500 years of history. Stories and Heirlooms reflect the family’s contribution to literature, politics and Foreign Service. Visits from people as diverse as Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth I have also added to Knebworth House’s rich heritage.

In more recent history Knebworth House has been named ‘The Stately Home of Rock’. The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Oasis and Robbie Williams as well as over 100 other major artists, have played Knebworth festivals since 1974 to over two million fans.

Knebworth House has also made appearances on the big screen, from major feature films, commercials, music videos and still shoots, with highlights including Batman, Victoria & Abdul and The Crown.

Two new exhibitions named ‘Rock History of Knebworth Park’ and ‘On Location at Knebworth House’ have opened showcasing some of the stories behind the concerts and filming that make Knebworth House so unique!

      Absolutely amazing, a touch of luxury and opulence. The classic car show added such great experience to our visit.What a gem of a place, well worth a visit. The gardens and Jurassic park a must for all visitors!

      Knebworth House and gardens are really interesting with lots to see.Access to the house is by guided tour - The house tour was great (kudos to Kevin!) with lots of history on the house, the family, artefacts on display and the estate in general. I wouldn't recommend taking younger kids (under 5) though.The gardens are really interesting with a maze and dinosaur models in the trees.The park is great with a huge fort and a range of big slides built into the hillside. It is a long walk from the house to the park/slides/fort, I would recommend driving.

      Well we didn't go into the house we only went to the grounds and park due to an event the medieval jousting for fathers day. All I can say is wow what a place grounds are amazing can see deer when you go on one of the walks the house looks beautiful. Got a wonderful dinosaur trail there plus a maze and even a herb garden just wow.

      My friend and I took our children here for an Easter egg hunt and we all had a lovely day. The grounds are stunning, as you can see from my pictures, and the play areas are brilliant! I would highly recommend paying Knebworth House a visit.👍🏽

      A lot to do between the dinosaurs trail, the wonderful wood walk with statues in wood to find, they loved the hill. Then we went to the fort : great castle to play in then some slides for older ones , a great playground and we didn't visit the house again but we did before lockdown and my son loved it.
