St Albans is a city in Hertfordshire, England. Located around 22 miles from London, St Albans has superb rail, road and air links with two train stations and easy access to London Luton Airport. Historic buildings such as St Albans Cathedral and St Albans School which provides the gateway top the abbey, give a glimpse into the city's heritage which has included being an important pilgrimage site and the first draft of the Magna Carta being drawn up there. The Roman past of the area is documented at the Verulamiam Museum with its recreated rooms and some of the finest Roman mosaics and wall plasters outside the Mediterranean. If the period from when the Romans left is of more interest to you then the Museum Of St Albans covers the city's history from that time to the present day.
