Hatfield is a particularly ancient area of Hertfordshire, starting life back in Saxon times and only 22 miles to the north of the capital. The settlement is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, when it belonged to Ely Abbey, and by the 13th century it was called Bishops Hatfield. The town had become quite important by that time, as it was granted permission to hold a four-day annual fair and a market every week. Today, Hatfield continues to thrive and has a particularly close historic association with the aviation industry, with the de Havilland firm opening an aircraft factory here in the 1930s.
Following the end of World War Two, Hatfield became the site of a New Town, and today it is characterised by classic 'modern' 1950s architecture and lots of green open spaces - the Government's grand vision for the future at that optimistic time. There are several excellent Hertfordshire B&Bs, hotels and guesthouses to stay at while you're in the area.
As the University of Hertfordshire is based in Hatfield there is a buzzing community of upwardly-mobile young people here which really lifts the spirits. The Galleria shopping centre is good for an afternoon in the designer outlets, and there's also a multi-screen cinema in the town. Stay at a local Hatfield hotel or guesthouse and you can visit Jacobean Hatfield House to enjoy the lovely historic gardens and see memorabilia from the reign of Elizabeth II.
Hertfordshire is one of those English counties close to London that is particularly rich in heritage and full of historic interest.

Hatfield is especially interesting because of is combination of charm and historic importance, and makes a popular visitor destination throughout the year. There are plenty of places to stay, and based at a Hertfordshire hotel or guesthouse you'll have quick and easy access to a multitude of attractions like Hatfield House and Hatfield Forest.
