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!
