Stop along the way for some refreshments, and reward yourself with a beer at one of the England's oldest pubs.

What to bring
  • Comfortable shoes
Know before you go
St. Albans is based around the Roman city of Verulamium. Though we can drive to the museum, church, and theatre, the beautiful Abbey is on top of a hill so a moderate 15-minute walk is required. Please wear comfortable shoes, trainers/sneakers.
