Tips van locals
30 minutes drive. Experience Henry Moore’s iconic work in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside with a visit to the artist’s former home, studios and sculpture gardens. Great pub (The Hoops Inn) next door.
A lovely open space to amble round with enormous and fascinating sculptures that you can go right right up to and touch. Henry Moore's house is also an intriguing place, frozen in time from the 60's.
Even if you are not a real sculpture fan seeing these pieces up close in this beautiful rural setting is a great experience.

“Chelmsford City Racecourse is Britain’s newest racecourse offering thrilling all-weather racing under the mesmerizing light of its Champagne fluted floodlights. The venue also highlights its versatility with a huge range of non-raceday events. Now into its third year, the racecourse continues to strive for excellence in all areas, already having won multiple Racecourse Association Excellence Accolades, most recently for staff customer service and visitor information. The brand-new facilities provide a wonderful setting from which to anchor your raceday experience. The Grandstand boasts two restaurants, one ideal for families, friends and corporate events, the other, a more formal environment and perfect to celebrate special occasions. The restaurants are complimented by the lively Sports Bar area offering various raceday packages and bars for general admission.”
