Rock concerts and Gothic architecture at Knebworth House

Knebworth, Hertfordshire

Set in 250 acres of rolling Hertfordshire countryside, Knebworth House is one of England's most colourful stately homes.

Knebworth House is a country house in the civil parish of Knebworth in Hertfordshire, famous worldwide for its rock concerts and as the home of Victorian novelist Edward Bulwer Lytton.

During the visitor season, Knebworth Park offers a great day out for all the family, with fun activities for children and lots 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.

In the Knebworth House and Gardens app, you can learn about the gryphons and the gothic architecture of the House, and explore the historical features of the Gardens.

It is remarkable for having been in the same family - the Lyttons - for more than 500 years and for its romantic exterior complete with turrets, domes and gargoyles, which conceals a red brick house dating from Tudor times.
