Clues To Go   -   St Albans Town Centre & Park

Starting in the busy town centre market square, you first explore the compact medieval area of St. Albans before walking downhill past the famous cathedral & to the open spaces of Verulamium Park.

There are numerous car parks in the streets either side of St Peter's Street. This route is wheelchair friendly.

Hertfordshire's oldest town, even before the Romans arrived. Originally an iron age settlement called Verlamion, meaning the Settlement above the Marsh. Later, in AD 900-950, a monastery was established here, named after St Alban, who was executed nearby.

Many of the inns in the town centre date back to the 15th century, when they catered for the travellers & pilgrims passing through.
