CLA East is delighted to invite you to a range of spectacular locations across our region for the CLA Autumn Visits 2021. Each unique venue will provide a highly informative and enjoyable day out and early booking is advised due to expected high demand.
Knebworth Estates is made up of 2000 acres of forestry, farms and residential/commercial properties. Much diversification has occurred over the last century, with the Deer Park, 250 acres of beautiful rolling Hertfordshire countryside, being the focal point. It includes 28 acres of Formal Gardens, parkland for events, and a children’s playground. Knebworth House has been to the Lytton family for over 19 generations, and has been open to the public regularly since 1970. Stories and Heirlooms reflect the family’s contribution to literature, politics and Foreign Service making for an extraordinary walk through 500 years of history. Visits from people as diverse as Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth I have also added to Knebworth’s rich heritage.
In more recent history Knebworth House has been named ‘The Stately Home of Rock’. The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Oasis and Robbie Williams as well as over 100 other major artists, have played Knebworth festivals since 1974 to over two million fans.
Knebworth House has also made appearances on the big screen, from major feature films, commercials, music videos and still shoots, with highlights including Batman, Victoria & Abdul and The Crown.
The visit will begin with an update and welcome from CLA Deputy President, Mark Tufnell, followed by a tour of the estate and a two course lunch.
