COMET HOTEL LONDON HATFIEL Hotel
First opening its doors in 1936, the original Comet Hotel was named for the locally built de Havilland Comet DH.88 racing aeroplane, which had been developed specifically for the 1934 England Australia MacRobertson Air Race. Having won this iconic race in a world record time, the Comet aeroplane was a true local hero, and an international legend. It represented the cutting edge of modern technology at time when the world was opening up thanks to international high speed travel. The eponymous hotel was actually designed around the footprint of the aircraft, which gives the building its unusual and iconic shape. The building's architectural style, known as Streamline Moderne, represents a late type of the Art Deco architecture and graphic design that emerged in the 1930s as response to the new optimism inspired by technology. The Comet Hotel reflects this concept in homage to the de Havilland Comet. Our refurbishment and extension is based on the rich heritage and period glamour of the original Comet Hotel, hearkening back to this golden age of air travel, glamour and sleek design. Beautiful period architecture, classic design and future-facing technology combine to create a welcoming and exciting environment, a rebirth for Hatfield's most iconic building. Situated in the Comet Hotel is the Element Bar & Kitchen, which marries perfect ingredients for an excellent meal, the perfect cocktail and a great night out. At Element Bar & Kitchen, they assemble all dishes and cocktails with care and passion, choosing only the best ingredients. With culinary alchemy and expert mixology, Element is the trusted sign for a perfect experience.

Hotels in St Albans
The ancient cathedral city of St Albans is famous for its Roman remains and medieval architecture. Set in Hertfordshire around 19 miles North of London, it is a fascinating centre for visitors, displaying numerous layers of history at every turn.
The Celtic Catuvellauni tribe had a settlement at Prae Hill a little to the west of present day St Albans, but it was as the Roman city of Verulamium, the second largest after Londinium, that the site really begins to grow in importance. After the Roman occupation, the medieval town developed around the foundations of St Albans Abbey, where the original draft of Magna Carta was drawn up. The Abbey Church became the parish church during the 16th century and a cathedral in 1877. The road that runs from the Abbey to the famous St Albans school, down towards the River Ver is called Abbey Mill Lane, where you can see the palaces of the Bishops of St Albans and Hertford, and The Fighting Cocks, which is one of the oldest pubs in England. Amongst the many notable old buildings and sites in St Albans, the early 15th-century Clock Tower is one of only two such designs in the country.
Restaurants and CafÃ©s
From St Albans hotels, you'll discover a real diversity of great places to eat and relax, from fine dining to friendly cafÃ©s and lovely old pubs. Lussmanns is a highly recommended and award-winning choice, with strong emphasis on the best of British and real sustainability. Try The Foragers at The Verulam Arms to experience superb wild food menus and seasonal treats. For an artisan-style coffee shop in the heart of St Albans, sample the fresh homemade food and warm atmosphere at bakehouse on Heritage Close, right opposite the Clock Tower.
Festivals and Events
A town with such deep roots has more than its fair share of traditional events as well as modern festivals. Whichever season you choose to visit there will be something going on! Near the beginning of May, there is the medieval tradition of Beating the Bounds, where members of the community walk the boundary of St Albans, and literally beat certain key points along the route with willow wands. The procession, led by the Mayor, follows the town's boundary as defined in 1327. In late May, traditionally over the Bank Holiday weekend, you can enjoy the colour and spectacle of the nearby Hertfordshire County Show, with its proudly displayed animals of all shapes and sizes, wonderful local produce and entertainment. Midsummer sees a weekend celebrating the town's Saint. The Alban Pilgrimage includes a unique carnival of puppets representing the life and fate of St Alban, with much of the area's amazing past also depicted. The procession through the centre to St Albans Cathedral includes Roman chariots, centurions, lions, roses and executioners in an explosion of colour and history. There is also an Alban Street Festival at the same time, complete with performance arena, music stages, food, drink and plenty more.
