St Albans is Hertfordshire’s only city. We are located some 22 miles north of central London and as a city, we have been welcoming visitors for over 2,000 years.
In Roman Britain, St Albans was called Verulamium and was Britain's third largest Roman City. The small river that runs through the city is called the River Ver. The Roman history of the City is preserved by the Verulamium Museum, which also includes the Hypocaust and Roman Theatre. St Albans Museum tells the story of St Albans from the departure of the Romans to the present day.
The Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban, which dominates the city’s skyline, is the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain. It stands over the place where Alban, the first martyr, was buried after giving his life for his faith over 1700 years ago.
The St Albans of today is based upon the medieval town which grew up around the Abbey and your new home will be within easy walking distance to the centre of town, where you will find the full range of high street brands, vibrant market days, a huge variety of bars and restaurants and the wonderful Cathedral.
Not only will you be near the City, we are just a 10 minute stroll to the main line station into St Pancreas International and a few minutes drive from the M25, M1 and A1.
Schooling in and around St Albans is second to none, with a range of State and Public Schools available within easy walking distance
