Hertfordshire, with its gently undulating meadows, extensive areas of farmland, forests and rich soils, is a rural paradise and food producer for the whole region, including the nearby capital. It has a relatively mild climate and its numerous market towns are packed with fresh produce throughout the year. The county's visitor attractions include theme parks, Jacobean mansions and ruined abbeys, as well as great historic town such as St. Albans.
With livestock and organic produce very much a feature of the county, festivals like the Hertfordshire County Show are enormously popular every year. If you're in the Flamstead neighbourhood in late May and staying at a Hertfordshire hotel in the area, you should pay it a visit, as the show is great fun for all ages.
Hertfordshire Hotels for Hertfordshire County Showground
The showground here plays host to many different events throughout the year, but the festival in May is the main one. The Hertfordshire County Show takes place here every May over the long Bank Holiday weekend and attracts anything up to 40,000 visitors from across the region and abroad, so it's certainly worth a look in. The animals on display represent a fair cross-section of what the county is most famous for, such as prize ducks and enormous bulls, but there are also many educational displays and demonstrations on offer if you've no particular interest in livestock. For free entertainment, shopping, food and an all-round fun day out you simply can't beat it. Book in to a nearby Hertfordshire hotel such as St. Michaels Manor Hotel or Ardmore House Hotel in St. Albans and you can easily get along here using the excellent local transport links.
