Travelling around St Albans
One of Britain’s oldest settlements, the city of St Albans (officially a city thanks to its whopping cathedral) manages to be historic without being stuffy and offers plenty to do without being overcrowded. Think Roman remains and lush green parklands, all just a 20-minute train ride from the centre of London and you get the idea.
Thanks to its impressive heritage and close proximity to the capital, there is always something to do in St Albans, whether you’re a resident or a tourist. Visit the cathedral, one of the many museums or stroll through the forest and nature spot – you’ll find that filling your day is easy here.
As you might expect from its geographical location, the transport links are great with regular trains to London, Luton and Bedford and the nearby M25 and M1. Thanks to Arriva buses, getting around the city is a piece of cake too. There are regular services running to Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Luton, Harlow and London Heathrow Airport.
