Once in St. Albans, embark on your guided tour through the city, visiting its ancient Roman ruins left over from the old city walls, and walk up the city's hill to the magnificent St. Albans Abbey, the ancient cathedral of the city and resting place of an early Christian martyr. Stop along the way for some refreshments, and reward yourself with a beer at one of the England's oldest pubs.

When you get there

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.
