Day 6 - Hatfield House


The morning of June 6, I headed for King's Cross to catch a train to Hatfield House, which is less than 30 minutes away.  The train station is literally across the street from the entrance to Hatfield House, 21 miles from London.

This Jacobean manor has been in the Cecil family for more than 400 years.  Numerous movies and TV shows have been filmed at Hatfield, including The Favourite.  A selection of the costumes were on display. 

Hatfield House is the seat of the Marquess and Marchioness of Salisbury.

After returning to London, I walked a part of the Regent's Canal from King's Cross to Camden.  I also spent some time in  St. James's Park and then walked over to the Horse Guards Parade to watch Beating the Retreat with the Duchess of Cambridge taking the salute.
















































































The guide pointed outside to the spot where Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives and is tossed out of the carriage and falls into a mud puddle.
