Experience the best of the Home Counties

One of the most underrated of all the Home Counties, Hertfordshire boasts some of the prettiest villages, best pubs and most beautiful landscapes in the South East. What’s more, as these classic English attractions are within easy reach of London and the M25, the county’s charms are easy for visitors to explore.

Nestled in the heart of rural Hertfordshire, in the pretty town of Hoddesdon, you’ll find High Leigh Conference Centre. Perfect for large organisations and small groups alike, the venue boasts flexible meeting and event spaces, high quality accommodation, spacious communal areas and stunning landscaped gardens.

As well as enjoying the wide range of facilities on offer at the site, delegates attending events at High Leigh will find it easy to get out and explore the local area. With a wealth of attractions just a stones throw from the site, making the most of a weekend at this venue could be easier than you think.

With the 10,000-acre Lee Valley Park just moments from High Leigh, it’s the perfect place to start your exploration of the local area. If the weather is playing ball, you can hire a boat and explore the park’s extensive waterways. Lee Valley is also fantastic for birdwatchers, walkers and cyclists, with a huge network of traffic free paths crisscrossing the site.

To really make a day of your excursion, arrange a cruise on the Lee River. A great way to relax after a busy weekend of meetings and events, a river cruise will give you the chance to lie back, unwind and watch the world go by.

Other fantastic outdoor attractions in the local area include the Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, the Rye Meads Nature Reserve in Hoddesdon and Waltham Abbey Church and Gardens.

If you’d like to find out more about the history of the local area, why not take a trip to the Royal Gunpowder Mills in nearby Waltham Abbey? Perfect for families, groups and fans of military history, the Royal Gunpowder Mills hold regular special events that allow visitors a fascinating insight into the manufacturer of gunpowder in the UK.

Another fantastic destination for history buffs is Hatfield House. Just a short drive from High Leigh, Hatfield House is a 17th century stately home and seat of the Cecil Family. A beautiful example of Jacobean architecture, both the grounds and the house itself are open to the public, making for a fascinating day out.

Last but not least, visitors staying at High Leigh will find London just on their doorstep. Easy to reach by car and train, the capital is jam packed with sights, attractions and fun things to do.
