Life in St Albans

A major settlement since pre-Roman times, the historic market town of St Albans offers a truly unique taste of Britain. Now the cathedral city stands as a buzzing metropolis, packed full of green parks and surrounded by beautiful countryside. London is also within easy reach – just 20 minutes by train.


Regular concerts and theatre productions take place across the city, while you’ll also find an eclectic mix of sports clubs, restaurants, bars and nightlife enabling you to dip your feet into British culture however you choose. Given the rich history of St Albans, its most famous location is its spectacular cathedral, which dominates the skyline.


St Albans is also home to the only example of a Roman theatre with a stage in the UK – the remains of the Roman Theatre of Verulamium and the nearby museum provide a glimpse into life in ancient Britain. Venturing further afield, you’ll find a range of historic buildings such as Bletchley Park, home to the famed WWII codebreakers, and the university city of Cambridge.


Numerous food and drinks festivals take place across the year in addition to the popular city centre market, while the Campaign for Real Ale was formed in St Albans – as a result you’ll be able to sample plenty of tipples from both local and national breweries in most bars and pubs you visit.


There are approaching 50 schools in the immediate vicinity of St Albans, covering all levels of teaching from nursery and infants through to primary, secondary and college.
