Travel Tips

There is no shortage of great places to visit in Hertfordshire, in fact, you may find it difficult to narrow down your options. This is where we aim to help and if you are looking to find the best attractions in Hertfordshire, here are our travel tips.

  • St Albans Cathedral

    If you are looking for an area with a sense of history, the fact that worshippers have been visiting the shrine of St Alban for over 1,700 years tells you that this is a place to visit.

    St Albans Cathedral is the site which has been of continuous Christian worship for the longest time in Britain and thousands of people visit on a regular basis.


  • The Snow Centre

    When it comes to an entertaining activity that can appeal to all of the family, The Snow Centre is a great location for a day out. This is one of the newest indoor ski centres in the country and it offers the very best and very latest in skiing activities and attractions.

    As well as providing a 160m slope, there are snowboarding and skiing slopes that are over 30m wide, which means that there is plenty of space for everyone.


  • Natural History Museum at Tring

    The story behind the collection on display at the Natural History Museum of Tring is worth telling in its own right.

    At the age of 7, Walter Rothschild declared that he was going to make a museum and by the age of 24, after collecting a wide range of specimens, he opened his first museum to the public. This occurred in 1892 and it is still one of the biggest private collections in the world.


  • Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter

    When it comes to pleasing the kids (and many adults), it is hard to argue against the magic of Harry Potter. The film series was located in Leavesden for over a decade and a huge array of props used during the films were retained on site. The nature of Harry Potter, with filming of earlier books taking place at the same time later books were being released, means that most film props were retained in case they were needed later.


  • De Havilland Aircraft Museum

    If you planes and the stories of aviation, you need to make a visit to the oldest aviation museum in the whole of the United Kingdom. The museum is dedicated to the de Havilland Aircraft, which was instrumental in aircraft development in the last century.

    There is also the fact that this manufacturer provided so many planes that were used in WWII, making this museum a great stop-off point for anyone with a serious interest in British history.


  • St Albans Clock Tower

    With this clock tower dating back to the early 1400s, there is a great sense of history on offer when you visit the St Albans Clock Tower, but there is a sense of history and presence around the building as well.

    This is a brilliant example of a belfry from medieval times, and it stands as a show of strength against the abbot of St Albans.


  • Willows Activity Farm

    Anyone looking for a great destination where all of the family can have fun will find that Willows Activity Farm is the ideal place to visit. Once you are in the farm, you have access to a wide range of shows, fun fair rides, rides on Tractors and acres of farmland space to enjoy and explore.

    One of the big highlights of the venue is the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground, which is included in the entry price.


  • Watford Colosseum

    Anyone looking for a great night out watching live music will find that the Watford Colosseum is one of the best venues outside of London.

    Research suggests that the venue is home to some of the finest acoustics in Europe and the venue has played host to not only many great live shows and theatre pieces, it has been utilised as a record venue. When Julian Lloyd Webber refers to the venue as "the finest recording venue in the world", it is clear that this is a venue that is made for music.


  • Paradise Wildlife Park

    Formerly known as Broxbourne Zoo, the Paradise Wildlife Park has been at the heart of showcasing animals in natural habitats and safe living conditions.

    The changes in the venue since it changed hands in the 1980s has led to the Paradise Wildlife Park being recognised as one of the leading woodland zoos in the world and the park is well known for its work with respect to conservation efforts.


  • Lee Valley Boat Centre

    When it comes to exploring what is on offer in Lee Valley Country Park or spending some time lazing on a boat in a river, the Lee Valley Boat Centre is the ideal way to while away some time.

    With the opportunity to fish or just relax on the boats, and with plenty of cycling, walking and bird watching options in the park, this is a destination that can keep you busy for a full day.
