Welcome to St Albans's Townpage

St Albans was formerly the very ancient town of Verulamium, Britain's third Roman City, and there is still an amphitheatre and mosaics open to view. In 793 Offa founded a monastery here on the site of the first Christian martyrdom, a Roman soldier killed in 209AD. The Norman Cathedral is a vast part of a new Abbey built after 1077, all other traces of which, bar one gateway, were destroyed in the Reformation.

Famous past residents include Francis Bacon, who lived at Gorhambury, and is buried in St. Michael's church. The poet Cowper was an inmate of a private asylum in French Row, and Dickens' Bleak House still stands. Nowadays, St Albans' blend of the modern and historic draws many visitors, and it offers many good facilities, including a range of restaurants and hotels.
