Hatfield House

Completed in 1611, Hatfield House is a grand country estate built by Robert Cecil, first Earl of Salisbury and son of Lord Burghley, the chief minister for Elizabeth I. It was whilst living here that Elizabeth learnt of her accession to the throne of England. As a result of our work with the Wallace Collection, CiD were invited to create a robust CMS based website, featuring larger images and a focused, user-friendly site structure for Hatfield House. The site refresh incorporated new initiatives underway at Hatfield House for it’s 400th Anniversary and expansion of the facilities and event services to include the family farm, hospitality, retail park and an adventure playground. As well as the website, CiD art directed photoshoots in the house and around the grounds to create a new Guidebook and we designed the logo and print items for the Hatfield Park Farm, as well as the campaign launch of the new ‘Stable Yard’ – a refurbished retail village of boutique craft shops.
