Hatfield House, Hertfordshire
Hatfield House is a very beautiful stately home in Hertfordshire described as one of the Treasure Houses of England. It is the family seat of the Cecil family and was home to the nineteenth century, three times Prime Minister, Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury. Further back in history, the Old Palace on the same site was owned by Henry VIII and used as a nursery for his three children. It is said that, in 1558, Queen Elizabeth I was sitting under an oak tree in the Hatfield parkland when she learned of her succession to the throne of England.
Hatfield House is a popular choice for film makers and is close to Pinewood, Leavesden and Elstree studios, with their excellent production facilities. Most recently part of the film The Favourite, starring Olivia Colman, Rachel Weiss and Emma Stone was filmed there.
