| Events in Markyate | 10 Places to Stay

Markyate is a pleasant Village peppered with 16th Century buildings in the county of Hertfordshire, home to nearly three thousand people, and was once a Coaching Stop on the main London to Midlands route in centuries past. The market town of Dunstable is close by and is a must if shopping is desired, or maybe the Stockwood Craft Museum is more for you, with displays on rural life and a huge collection of horse drawn vehicles. Or perhaps link with the past on a visit to the Roman Theatre at St Albans, or there is always the impressive and unforgettable site of Verulamium Museum where the fabulous reconstructed Roman rooms give an insight into what life was really like, add intricate Mosaics, jewellery and other treasures makes for a fascinating experience, time it right and see the impressive Roman legions in full regalia. Animal lovers will be heading for Whipsnade Wild Animal Park as it’s home to two and a half thousand animals, climb aboard for a trip on a Steam Locomotive, or enjoy the Discovery Centre, or take a look at Whipsnade Tree Cathedral where trees are planted in the form of a Medieval Cathedral amongst grass avenues and wild flowers.
