Mill Green Museum & Mill

Mill Green Museum is a delightful museum and working watermill. The building is very pretty and is listed grade II* and dates from the 17th century. The mill uses the power of the River Lea and the site has been used for milling since at least the Domesday Book. You can still see the watermill in action and hear from the resident miller about the craft - and maybe take some of the flour home for that banana bread you've been perfecting!

The Museum features tools, equipment and photos of the local area and the major local employers such as Cresta Silks and de Havilland.

de Havilland Aircraft Museum

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum was the first aviation museum in Britain when it opened in 1959. Salisbury Hall was the base for the Mosquito design team during the war, an aircraft that made a huge contribution to the war effort. Now the collection extends beyond some of their unique Mosquito examples and also includes the Trident, BAE 146, the revolutionary Comet and even a Tiger Moth used as a trainer in World War 2, and much more besides. It is a varied and fascinating collection celebrating this famous aircraft maker that was based just up the road from the hotel in Hatfield.

Welwyn Roman Baths

Enter this time tunnel to step back to the world of the Romans, with a visit to these excavations of the Welwyn Roman Baths. Unfortunately you can't take a hot bath any more, the boiler went out about 1,800 years ago when the Romans left, and you know how difficult it is to get a decent plumber!

Natural History Museum Tring

I bet you didn't know that the Natural History Museum has 2 locations - the famous South Kensington location which you could also visit on a day trip - but also Tring, much easier to park and a fascinating visit in its own right. This is a step back in time to how museums used to be - the polished glass cabinets and the stuffed exhibits - and the team here have built on this with some excellent self guided tours and helpful information to uncover the history of the collection and the development of life on Earth, from the smallest insects to the largest mammals.
