The Hertfordshire Collection
Hertfordshire is just one hour from the Capital, so a perfect add-on, great value extension to your London trip. It’s also an idea to use this location en route to Cotswolds or East England with St Alban’s falling within the top 4 visited cities/towns in the East of England.
St Alban’s has its iconic cathedral visible from miles away, perched near parkland with museum and quirky shops-plus market days on a Wednesday & Saturday. Within minutes your choice of accommodation includes large, English country manor house estates like The Grove with its famous championship golf course or Pendley Manor with an award-winning spa and brewery heritage.
If you’ve indulged in the Netflix production of The Crown, you’ll recognise the grandeur and picturesque estates of Hatfield House and Knebworth House & Gardens. These regal country mansions remain privately owned with families in residence, but nevertheless, tours are available. Keeping on the film theme, Warner Bros Studio and Harry Potter is just 20 minutes away.
A new initiative called “Garden’s & Gourmets” is available for Herefordshire visitors, allowing free entry and lots of added value to restaurants, shops and attractions; email Pinpoint Britain for rates (these are not yet available directly to customers!).
The Hertfordshire collection may not be on everyone’s radar-and it’s only because it’s not yet gained the recognition is deserves-but this is not far away; we believe an itinerary that delivers English Heritage and Culture is just on the doorstep of London and will tick so many boxes. There are numerous tours and you can obtain a tailor-made itinerary for your visit from Pinpoint Britain which will include a taste of tradition within the English Countryside.
