Old Knebworth is centred on the famous Knebworth House, which is a beautiful Grade II listed building that plays host to a variety of music concerts.

The current Knebworth household belongs to Henry Lytton-Cobbold and has been in the family since 1490. Despite this, the house remains open to the public who are able to visit the delightful 28-acre gardens, with beautiful trees and a wilderness area.
