Meet up for LJN members at Hatfield House in Herts with Henry Moore exhibition as added attraction.
Ok we now have a plan! Many thanks to Craig for researching things and making notes for our tour!
How to Get There
As people will be coming from different directions, it is best to buy your own entrance ticket and meet us inside the Stable Courtyard at 11am. There is a map and directions on the Hatfield House website or see below:
The main entrance to Hatfield Park is opposite Hatfield station with a 5 minute walk to the house. The fast train from Kings Cross to Hatfield takes 25 minutes. Latest train to catch is the 10:36 arriving at Hatfield at 10:57am.
Post code: AL9 5HX for Sat Nav. Hatfield House is 7 miles North of the M25 (junction 23) and 2 miles East of the A1(M) (junction 4). Exit the A1(M) at junction 4 (after the Hatfield Tunnel if travelling from the South) and follow the brown leisure signs for Hatfield House via the A414 and A1000. The car and coach park via George’s Gate which is a few hundred yards on from the Station Lodge entrance, at the mini roundabout with a large Citroen dealership.
For the event people will need to buy the Henry Moore, West Garden & Park Ticket £12.50
If you wish to visit the House too then Hatfield House, Henry Moore, West Garden & Park Ticket £18.50.
Meeting point 11am in the Stable Yard courtyard - at the water needle fountain located in the centre - see picture in link. You can grab a coffee while we assemble
Tour of Gardens
Craig has volunteered to lead a tour of the gardens and can give us a bit of background info and we can have a leisurely stroll/informal chat for approx 2 hours.
I have booked a table in the Coach House Restaurant for us at 1.30pm - it’s self-service with a range of morning coffee, lunches, snacks, salads and delicious afternoon teas. If there are any members who cannot make the morning, why not meet us here for lunch. The minimum number for them to accept a table reservation is 14 - so I am really hoping we can reach that number!
If anybody thinks we should have a more formal discussion over lunch, please suggest anything here you would like us to cover.
Free time - you can re-enter the garden or the park or visit the house (if you have bought the ticket that includes a visit to the house) - or continue discussions with other members.
