Dating from the 17th century, the gardens at Hatfield House have evolved into a gardeners’ paradise. Visitors can enjoy the peace of the West Garden with its scented garden and fountains, and view the famous knot garden adjoining the Tudor Old Palace where Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood. The East garden bordering the Jacobean house, home of the Cecil family for 400 years, is more formally planted with its parterre, topiary, herbaceous borders and vegetable garden.
