Hatfield House - June 5th

Started June off with a trip to Hatfield House with Boon.  It has been the home for Royalty for hundreds of years and is still the residence of the Cecil family who are from the Royal Family.  This house was built by the 1st minister to King James I - Robert Cecil and has been owned by the Cecil family ever since.

Part of the movie "The King's Speech" , two of the Batman movies, as well as Tomb Raider,
Charlie & the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp and many others were filmed here.

Two views of this room.  Walls filled with pictures of the Royals for many generations
and gifts they received.

Some of the many massive gardens

Chair used for Queen Victoria's coronation.
She was the only person to ever sit in this chair -it is off in a special area.

Great dining Hall
