Henry Moore Studios and Gardens, Perry Green
It’s the perfect weather to visit the heavenly Henry Moore Studios and Gardens. If you haven’t been, put it on your list for this summer. There’s a new visitor centre, cafe and shop and it’s just the most fantastic place. It’s one of my top places in Herts.
