Planning a fun day out can be stressful, especially if it’s to an unknown location. We’re really familiar with Hertfordshire as we offer our services in the area. It’s always best to plan ahead so you know exactly what you’re doing and can get the best experience on the day. Masons Minibus & Coach Hire Ltd have helped to relieve this stress by recommending their top places to go when you visit Hertfordshire.

Food

If you’re stuck between choosing pug grub or a classy restaurant, why not go for something in-between? Dylan’s at The Kings Arms offers a lovely pub setting while still offering high-quality food. They also love their ales and beers and have a Beer Wall that they update daily; alongside this, their menu also changes daily/weekly to add more variety. They have won a multitude of awards, including the Hertfordshire Life Food & Drink Awards 2018.

Fancy something a little more elegant? How about afternoon tea at Pendley Manor. Set just outside the town of Tring, experience the picturesque landscape whilst enjoying your finger sandwiches and cakes in one of the hotels many lounges.

Thrill

For those wanting to experience some adventure when they visit Hertfordshire, Rye House is a must. Offering a Karting track, Rye-assic Park with lots of activities for little ones, and laser and Nerf wars, there is something for everyone.

Is swinging through the trees something you’ve wanted to try? Now is your chance! At Go Ape!, there are activities for all abilities, with the choice of completing obstacle courses with the help of a harness or trying their Nets Kingdom, which consists of nets and trampolines up in the treetops. If heights aren’t your thing, you can embark on one of their forest segways and explore the area on two wheels.

Culture

If you want to focus on history when you visit Hertfordshire, the Frogmore Paper Mill is well worth a visit. It is the birthplace of the Paper Industrial Revolution with the creation of the Fourdrinier machine. Visits include a tour and the chance to make your own sheet of paper. There are also different courses held throughout the months so it may be worth checking what’s on before you go.

For more of a focus on art, the Henry Moore Studios and Gardens could be the place for you. You can see Henry Moore’s iconic sculptures in a 70-acre garden setting, and visit his family home and studios where he used to work. They also hold exhibitions and courses throughout the months which may be of interest.
