Hatfield House is proud to be one of the Treasure Houses of England, ten of the most magnificent palaces, houses and castles in England.
Members include Beaulieu, Blenheim Palace, Burghley, Chatsworth, Castle Howard, Harewood House, Holkham Hall, Hatfield House, Leeds Castle and Woburn Abbey. Each house is an architectural masterpiece surrounded by beautiful parklands and gardens.
All the Treasure Houses are professionally managed, with highly diversified estates, offering quality activities and interest for all throughout the year. They display some of the most important art and objects in the world. Many are now embracing contemporary art, and feature the collections of successive generations of owners through the centuries. All have fascinating stories to tell of their former masters and mistresses, as well as all the people who have worked at or visited the estates.
