The historic city of St Albans

The Cathedral - external view

The city of St Albans has an extraordinarily rich and varied history. Built around the Roman city of Verulamium, it is today only 20 minutes away by train from London. St Albans Cathedral is over one thousand years old, and St Michael’s Church is the most significant surviving Anglo-Saxon building in the county. There is much to occupy and delight the visitor, all in a compact geographic area.
