'Hertford Castle' refers more to an area in the middle of the town rather than the 15th century gatehouse that lies at the centre of it, the only remaining building of the actual castle that once stood there.
There are, however, other remnants including 11th century perimeter walls built with flint and the original 10th century motte. All this is situated by the river Lea and surrounded by some very well kept gardens, the modern day use being mainly as a park area.
The castle has had some famous residents over the years, including Elizabeth I, who was a frequent visitor.
