Top Ten Family-Friendly Historic Houses by Abigail Flanagan

"With a guestbook ranging from Queen Elizabeth Ist and Churchill, to The Rolling Stones and Oasis; Knebworth - for all its gothic turrets and gargoyles – is anything but traditional. 500 years of history ensures there’s plenty here to explore on the educational front; however, there’s no denying that the Fort Knebworth Adventure Playground and interactive Dinosaur Trail (there’s 72 life-size pre-historic creatures to track down) will resonate loudest with kids. This year’s special events include an Easter Trail; Dino Day; Ghost and Bat tours; family Sports Day, and an open-air production of Wind in the Willows."
