Saint Albans Overview

St Albans is the main urban area of the City and District of St Albans in southern Hertfordshire, England, around 35 kilometers north of central London.

St Albans has got a 15th Century Cathedral & Abbey Church which is quite an impressive one. But there is a lot more to see in St Albans. For the people who want to know the real British Towns this is the place to be.

It was the first major town on the old Roman road of Watling Street for travellers heading north and became the Roman city of Verulamium.

St Albans has a large variety of nice restaurants, traditional pubs, wine bars and coffee shops, also as numerous of shops including top brand names, high street stores and cute one offs.

The area also has a large green area next to a lake which is a great spot for picnics. This area is also a beautiful park where you can walk, feed the birds, visit one of the oldest pubs in Britain and also if you walk up to the top of the park far enough you will be able to find the ruins :) which are lovely to see and there is even a tiny museum - like building up here which gives plenty of information of what you are looking at and what the area used to look like.
