The St Albans City tour takes us to the Roman City of St. Albans. It has a long and rich history but is also small enough to see in a day without rushing. Originally inhabited by ancient British tribes, it later became a major Roman city and as Roman ruins in the park and a small amphitheatre and Roman museum.
Modern St. Albans is dominated by it’s glorious Abbey which is a Cathedral in all but name. Here you can wonder at the amazing architecture and learn the story of Saint Albans, who was martyred here and visit his elaborate though fragile tomb.
St. Albans is also home to a market on its cobbled-stone streets as well as several notable churches including that of St. Michaels reputed to be the burial place of Francis Bacon. A short away is the Holy Well, with its strong connections not just to early Christianity but even with King Arthurs father, King Uther Pendragon who is said to have drank the magical waters here before a famous and unexpected victory against our enemies.
This tour is by train from Central London. The journey is about half an hour. Your guide can either meet you outside the small St Albans City Station or in London St Pancras if you prefer.
