Hatfield House, the childhood residence of Elizabeth Tudor, after she was exiled from her father's court, following the disgrace and execution of her mother, Anne Boleyn. It is also the property where she received word that she was now Queen of England, after the death of her sister, Mary I.

The present house was built in by Robert Cecil, the Earl of Salisbury and has been home to the Cecil family ever since. It is currently the home of Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, the Marquess of Salisbury.
