Heritage and Gardens

St Albans Cathedral stands over the place where Alban, Britain’s first saint, was buried over 1700 years ago. Surrounded by parkland, and just a stone’s throw from the city centre, the Cathedral is home to the Shrine of St Alban, the longest nave in England, stunning medieval wall paintings and architecture that spans a millennia. Entry is free (donations gratefully received) and there are free guided tours every day of the week. The Abbot’s Kitchen cafe serves delicious lunches and afternoon teas, and gifts are available from the cathedral shop.
