Hertfordshire is full of historic and cultural attractions for every age of visitor. People come to this beautiful county from nearby London, across the United Kingdom and farther afield for its strikingly varied natural scenery and to see some of the best stately homes in the UK, perfectly preserved and restored. There are numerous excellent museums and galleries here which chronicle the county's colourful and eventful history, and the Rhodes Arts Complex in Mountfitchet Castle is one of the best of them. Be sure to pay a visit if you can next time you're in the area, perhaps staying at a nearby Hertfordshire hotel such as St Michaels Manor Hotel or The White Hart Hotel in St. Albans.
Hertfordshire Hotels for the Rhodes Arts Complex in Bishops Stortford
This is a contemporary arts venue and also home to the excellent Thorleybourne Gallery and Bishops Stortford Museum. Netteswell House is the original core of the complex and was the birthplace of the famous statesman, financier and entrepreneur Cecil Rhodes, which is of course where the name comes from. The Rhodes Arts Complex runs a full programme of creative events throughout the year, including dance productions, local and professional theatre, in-house, live music, exhibitions and comedy. There are also lectures and educational workshops on all aspects of the performing arts, and the full-size cinema shows everything from the latest Hollywood blockbusters to Continental specialty cinema and avant-garde productions. There's something for everyone at this lively local arts venue, so bring the family along from your Hertfordshire hotel for a fun afternoon or evening.

The other part of the complex is the Thorleybourne Gallery, which displays works by leading photographers, artists and sculptors, and plays host to school and group visits. Have an educational and fun day out from your Hertfordshire hotel here at the Rhodes Arts Complex.
