Knebworth House, Knebworth, nr. Stevenage, Hertfordshire SG1 2AX

Set in 250 acres of Hertfordshire countryside with 28 acres of Formal gardens, Knebworth House has been home to the Lytton family for over 19 generations, making for an extraordinary walk through 500 years of British and local history. The red Tudor-brick building is clad in the Victorian High Gothic style of its most famous family member, the novelist and statesman Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton. He penned the lines ‘…it was a dark and stormy night’ and ‘…the pen is mightier than the sword’. Inside, there are stories and heirlooms that reflect the family’s contribution to literature, politics and Foreign Service, alongside visits by characters such as Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill and Queen Elisabeth I. Popular rooms include the Jacobean Banqueting Hall, Victorian Library and Edwardian Dining Parlour.
