Hatfield House is the home of the 7th Marquess and Marchioness of Salisbury and their family. It was built in 1611 by Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury, who was one of Elizabeth I’s most important advisors. Cecil used material from the Old Palace, part of which is still standing today, to build the present house.
