SatNav: Please don't use the Ickworth postcode for your SatNav - use IP29 5SA instead. The main entrance to the Ickworth Estate is via Horringer Village on the A143 and then follow the brown signs. Please avoid routes through Chevington as this is a no-through road.

The glass fair is held in the Gallery on first floor of the West Wing above the shop and cafe. There is lift to the first floor where you will find the Glass Fair, the bookshop and the Squash Cafe.

There are parking places in visitor car park reserved for those with accessibility issues and we would ask other visitors not to use these spaces.

Knebworth Glass Fair

Knebworth Barns

Knebworth House is a beautiful 500-year old gothic mansion, with its turrets, domes and gargoyles silhouetted against the sky.

The fair is held in the Knebworth Barns, a complex made up of two 400 year old tithe barns, the Manor and the Lodge, plus the Cobbold and Lytton Barns, two brand new oak structures which were completed in September 2011.

The licensed restaurant in the Garden Terrace Barn has seating for 76 guests and serves a variety of hot and cold snacks, freshly-prepared sandwiches, homemade cakes, tea, coffee and much more.

The venue has extensive free parking.

Knebworth House & Park are accessed direct from the Junction 7 roundabout of the A1(M) motorway at Stevenage South, 29 miles north of London. There are signs on both carriageways of the motorway.

If you are using a Sat Nav system use the post code of the Stevenage Novotel  at Junction 7 - SG1 2AX - not the Knebworth House post code.

Knebworth Barns are all on a single level with a ramp to the visitor entrance.

Parking places close to the foyer entrance are reserved for those with accessibility issues and we would ask other visitors not to use these spaces.
