Knebworth House and Gardens
The historic Knebworth House and Gardens cover 28 acres. See why it is so famous
There have been gardens at Knebworth House since at least the 17th Century, but the present layout dates largely from the Edwardian era.The architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, who married into the Lytton family, simplified the ornate beds and statuary of the Victorian garden with lawns and avenues of pollarded lime trees.
Popular features of the 28 acres now include a maze, the organically run walled kitchen garden, the Gertrude Jekyll Herb Garden and the Dinosaur Trail, where 72 life-sized dinosaurs can be found grazing amongst the rhododendrons and the redwoods. Exploring the woodland paths, children can learn about the T-Rex, the Woolly Mammoth and other fascinating pre-historic creatures. Visitors with children will enjoy a visit to the Adventure Playground, which is included in the park and garden admission ticket. House admission extra.
