Pay once visit all season
Plan your visit
House
In 2015, visitors who purchase a House, Park and West Garden or a West Garden
and Park ticket will be entitled to a free upgrade to their ticket to a Park and West
Garden Season Ticket, which will enable them to come back to the Park and West
Garden throughout the Visitor Season as often as they like.
Before leaving Hatfield Park, visitors will need to fill in their name, agree to the
terms and conditions, and have the back of their ticket stamped; this can be done
at the House Reception, any ticketing point (after 1pm) or in the Gift Shop.
On returning to the Park or West Garden on another occasion, the bearer of the
Season Ticket will need to show their ticket along with a form of official ID to a
member of ticketing staff to gain access. For the Season Ticket to be valid the date
purchased must match the date stamped on the back of the ticket.
For full terms and conditions please see the website
