About Hertfordshire

Situated in the South-East of England, Hertfordshire is bounded by the Counties of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Greater London and Essex. Hertfordshire is not only popular with tourists but also commuters due to its easy access to Greater London and its many interesting attractions such as St Albans Cathedral, built on what is believed to be the site of the martyrdom of St Alban, Knebworth House, a beautiful gothic mansion and famous worldwide for its rock concerts and as the home of Victorian novelist Edward Bulwer Lytton - author of the words "The pen is mightier than the sword" and Scott's Grotto a series of interconnected chambers, extending some 67ft into the chalk hillside, built for the 18th century poet John Scott.
