3 reasons to visit Shenley! Posted On 02 July 2019

Manor Lodge School

Manor Lodge School, a local Prep School in Hertfordshire have pulled together 3 reasons for you to pay Shenley a visit this weekend!

Shenley is a picturesque village located between St Albans and Barnet. It was an extremely popular location for the gentry and became the home to some of London’s first commuters who wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of Central London and enjoy the beautiful countryside.

Sample the food & drink

Shenley has a number of delicious restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs for you to check out while you are here. Try the pasta or pizza at gorgeous Italian restaurant Novita or stick to traditional British cuisine at The White Horse Pub.

Learn about the history

Shenley is home to one of the last remaining roundhouse gaols in the whole of England. The beehive shaped building dates back to the 18th century. If walking is more your thing then stroll round Watling Chase Timberland Trail which follows a path used by travellers for over 2000 years. It follows old medieval tracks and old coach routes.

Enjoy a fun day with the kids!

Do something a bit different and spend a sunny afternoon at the Stanley Lord Orchard, sample the fresh apple juice produced from the 450 apple trees. If you and your family enjoy the great outdoors you should pay a visit to The Walled Garden. In the summer you can take a picnic and take in the beautiful views of the grounds. If you time it right you can also catch a game of cricket to keep you entertained!

There are many reasons for you to make a visit to Shenley, these are just a few! Do you have any favourite things to do in the area that we have not included?
