Guided Tours of the Stately home are included in the House admission ticket, lasting about an hour. Knowledgeable guides will tell visitors about the history of the House and the Lytton family that has lived there for over 500 years. There are some colourful characters to find out about, including Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton who penned the famous line …’it was a dark and stormy night’.

There have been gardens at Knebworth House since the 17th century, but the present layout was created by two of Britain’s most renowned garden designers; Sir Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll. Popular features include the maze, walled vegetable garden, formal rose garden and colourful borders.
