• Welcome To Knebworth House

    One of England’s most beloved stately homes, Knebworth House is famous worldwide for its rock concerts and as the home of Victorian novelist Edward Bulwer Lytton. This beautiful gothic mansion is situated 29 miles north of London off the A1(M) at Stevenage.

    Knebworth Park offers a great day out for all the family, with fun activities for kids, and things to do for all ages, including Adventure Playground, Dinosaur Trail, a walk through history in Knebworth House and Gardens and special events throughout the summer.  Our licensed self-service restaurant offers a delicious selection of home-made and locally sourced lunch and teatime treats.

    The House, Gardens and Park are open on weekends and school holidays until the end of September, and remain open all year for private and special events.
