Hertfordshire has so much to offer visitors, whether you’re a keen foodie or looking for ways to keep the kids occupied.
Hertfordshire is one of the most vibrant, exciting places to enjoy a break – and there’s plenty going on this October! It doesn’t matter if you are a couple looking to enjoy a relaxed weekend or a parent trying to keep the kids amused during Half Term. In Hertfordshire, you’ll be sure to find the perfect autumn event for you. If you want to make some unforgettable memories during your time in the county, then why not combine an event or two with a stay at Beales Hotel, one of the most popular hotels in Hatfield?
St Albans Food and Drink Festival
Hertfordshire has established itself as something of a culinary hotspot and the St Albans Food and Drink Festival is the perfect showcase for that. The festival schedules jam-packed with workshops for keen cooks to take part in, as well as tasting events and late-night festivities. You will be able to purchase lots of produce too, so you can get some inspired and then head home to cook up some treats of your own.
Dark Arts at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London
The Harry Potter studio tour has helped to put Hertfordshire on the map, turning the county into an international destination. The Dark Arts seasonal event kicks off this autumn, and it promises to be one of the highlights of the year. All your children’s (and your!) favourite film sets will be decked out in all kinds of spooky decorations. There are lots of fun activities for everyone to take part in too, such as duelling the fearsome Death Eaters.
Howl-lo-ween at Paradise Park
Paradise Park is one of the most popular attractions in Hertfordshire, and this October sees the arrival of Howl-lo-ween. Running from October 20th until November 4th, this scary spectacular is the perfect Half Term treat for the kids. Kids will be given free wolf masks on arrival, will be able to try their little hands at carving pumpkins, and then get up close with some of the creepy crawlies in the fun and educational Animal Spooktacular Shows. As days out for kids go, it ticks all the boxes!
Chilterns Heritage Festival
The first Chilterns Heritage Festival gets underway this autumn. Heritage walks and open days that delve into the history of the area will allow you to learn all about some of the most iconic and beautiful locations in Hertfordshire. Exploring any one of these historic buildings, museums or landscapes will show you just how great the Hertfordshire part of the Chilterns is.

Thanks to its central Hatfield location, Beales Hotel is the perfect base for a trip to Hertfordshire and can be easily reached by road and public transport. With a renowned restaurant, friendly staff, and great facilities, it’s not hard to see why it’s popular for both weekend mini breaks and longer trips alike.
