Knebworth is a village in Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. The community dates back to at least Norman times. The part of the village that is called Old Knebworth developed around the estate of Knebworth House. This stately mansion is the main attraction for visitors who come to discount hotels in Knebworth. The house has been in the Lytton family since 1490 when it was purchased by Sir Robert Lytton. Originally a Late Gothic manor house, it was renovated several times and is now of Tudor Gothic style. It was once the home of Edward Bulwer-Lytton, a famous Victorian author, dramatist and statesman who put in the formal Italianate gardens. The Lytton family has opened the property to the public. The grounds have an adventure playground for children, a dinosaur park and a mini-railway.
Visitors can add their names to an extraordinary guest book that has signatures from Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth II. Knebworth House hosts classic car rallies, music concerts and other events. It has been in many movies including The Shooting Party, The Great Muppet Caper, Batman (1989), and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Knebworth’s St. Mary’s Church dates back to 1120. Trinity Church goes back to 1880. The Lytton Arms Pub was built in 1877, and the Station Hotel in 1883. The Roebuck Pub possibly dates back to 1420.
