EXPLORE Stevenage

Don't Go Home Without

Take the 30-minute drive to St Albans to see what London mayor Boris Johnson called 'a miniature Britain'. You can see medieval wall paintings and climb the tower at 1,000-year-old St. Albans Cathedral, or discover a Roman theatre and mosaics at the Verulamium Museum. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, you can pick up tasty local produce at a traditional market that dates back hundreds of years.

Must See

The Lamex Stadium, home to Stevenage FC is a must-visit for sports fans in the area. Book now to experience the thrill of the venue and its amazing atmosphere. The stadium is less than 10-minutes from our Stevenage hotel.

Must Do

In warm weather, the parkland surrounding Knebworth House, less than two miles from the hotel, comes alive with visitors. The house has impressive gargoyles, turrets and ornate period furnishings, but it's the grounds, complete with a dinosaur trail, an adventure playground and extensive landscaped gardens, that attract intrepid families. Watch out for special outdoor events throughout the summer.

Local Tips

If your kids love animals, you can take them to see lions, penguins and zebras at the Paradise Wildlife Park, 25 minutes' drive from the hotel. Hunt for tortoises in the tropical rainforest, catch a show at the Jungle Theatre, or watch the animals being fed and learn all about them from their keepers. For a special treat, book early for the chance to feed the tigers or meet the meerkats.
