Newest Review: ... in a controversial modern white building in the middle of Verulamium Park and often mistaken for public toilets). The Roman Museum is also located in the park and houses one of the largest and most complete Roman Mosaics in the country - the Shell Mosaic, AD 150. The museum is open every day of the week (but only from 2pm on Sundays). The costs are: Adults - £3.50 , Children, Senior Citizens & Concessions - £2.00, Family (2 adults + 2 children) - £9.00.The Roman museum is very good for young families, with hands-on Roman coin handling, interactive videos, Roman bodies in coffins, and exciting re-creations of Roman life.

I have lived in St Albans for 20 years. At the moment it remains a lovely Cathedral city, surrounded by green belt countryside, but it is under considerable threat from developers and has lost many amenities in recent years. St Albans is built on the site of Roman Verulamium, and a nice quirk is that the remains of the city are said to exist under Verulamium Park- untouched and undiscovered. Many Roman remains can still be seen around the city, including the Roman Theatre, the Roman Wall and the Roman Hypocaust (located in a controversial modern white building in the middle of Verulamium Park and often mistaken for public toilets). The Roman Museum is also ... Read the complete review

I have grown up and lived in St Albans for almost 20 years, and absolutely love it! I have only recently moved out, because I have got my own place and cannot afford to buy there (purely because it is so nice, the house prices tend to be quite high). The city is a real mix of modern city life and historic Roman city. There are plenty of shops to keep you occupied, and a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There is even a French market around once a month, and I think they have started to host an Italian market as well now. There is an abundance of places to eat and drink in St Albans, from the very posh restaurants, to cafes, to reasonably priced cafes to ... Read the complete review

Wow i never knew there was so much to do here in st albans , until my mother in law had to have a knee replacement done at one of the hospitals . We spent lots of time visiting her , it was very nice and clean hospital so no complaints there. As we drove through the town to get there we noticed what a vast array of shops they have got . So one weekend we decided to make a day of and go shopping , parking was a little difficult , especially if you don''t know st albans very well. with the morning gone we found a sign in the town centre with a map of st albans on it and it had all the local tourist attractions on it , so what was we going to choose was it the ...

This is a company located in St. ALbans. They let so many flats but generally they don't like to make contracts. Cos' they let their own flats, since they don't make contracts, they don't pay anything to goverment. But they don't hesitate to get percentage out of rental payment, even though they, themslef, own the flats. They have always put preassure on students. Since they don't make contact, they always chase you to get the payment. and They think they can do anything just because if you're student. Never ever rent any flat from this company. Never ever!!! ... Read the complete review

Having grown up in this ancient city, it's easy to forget that it's also a place with several historic tourist lures. Layers of it's history are visible, from Roman Verulanium's amphitheatre, through the Medieval Abbey and Clocktower, the two battle grounds of the Wars of the Roses, through to the contemporary Gardens of the Rose (show place for the National Rose Society). Perhaps when I next go home I will re-visit some of these sites and write more detailed ops of them, but as a whole St Albans has much to recommend it to travellers and day-trippers from London, so long as they are interested in history.. Located about 25 minutes by train ... Read the complete review

Great day out; fantastic views; amazing caves.
Not so good for the very young eg babies/children in pushchairs. Its best to go on a warm sunny day.
A beautiful place and one man's dream creation
It can be expensive to eat there and stay in the accommodation in the village
