What is ‘Friends of Hatfield Park’

Hatfield Park is the home of the Marquess of Salisbury and has been the seat of the Cecil family since 1611. It is accessible to the fee-paying public for ‘Open Seasons’ each year. The Estate also runs ‘Friends of Hatfield Park,’ which is exclusively for those who live in the local parish of Bishop’s Hatfield and residential tenants renting a property directly from Hatfield Park.

Members of Friends of Hatfield Park are allowed repeated pedestrian access to the majority of the park throughout the year along with other benefits. Members can enjoy access for either a 6 or 12 month period, with the exception of publicly ticketed events, filming sets and a limited number of Public Holidays.

Residential tenants of Hatfield Park will automatically be invited to join Friends of Hatfield Park without charge.
