Queen Elizabeth I, Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill, Mick Jagger… since my family, the Lyttons, came to Knebworth in 1490, nineteen generations ago, our home has entertained an extraordinary range of guests from all walks of life.
So close to London, and yet nestled in the rolling hills of the English Countryside, Knebworth House is the perfect place for entertaining colleagues, friends, family, loved ones – whether you have just one, or three hundred and seventy-five thousand, as Robbie Williams did!
My wife Martha and I very much hope you will add your name to our illustrious Guest Book and experience some of the magic of this beautiful, historic place. As my great-great-great-grandfather, Edward Bulwer Lytton, painted on the walls on our banqueting hall:
“Welcome… to our hearth, where rooted friendships grow.”
The Hon. Henry Lytton Cobbold
