With a romantic, turreted exterior and an interior filled with historical artefacts, Knebworth House, near Stevenage, is a fantastic day out.

If this stately home looks familiar, it’s probably because it’s been a filming location for a slew of movies – The King’s Speech, Nanny McPhee and Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, to name a few. Kids will love the dinosaur trail and the adventure playground, and there are also lovely gardens and tea rooms to enjoy. Here are the best places to stay when visiting Knebworth House – bookable on Culture Trip.
