Travel Tips for St Albans

Coat of Arms

by graeme83

For those that are interested in heraldry, this is the crest of St. Albans. The significance of the crest is explained from the following website : http://www.ngw.nl/int/gbr/s/stalbans.htm

"The blue shield with gold saltire was recorded as St. Albans' arms in 1634 and certified in 1951. These are the attributed arms of the Kingdom of Mercia. King Offa of Mercia founded St. Albans abbey on the site of his martyrdom. Tradition has it that from that date the Mercian arms were granted to the town. In 1974 the larger city had supporters and crest added.

The crest has the figure of a baron holding the Magna Carta, which has associations with St. Albans.

The dexter supporter is a mitred abbot. The abbots once governed the town. The sinister supporter is a printer, as the town was an early centre of the industry."

Walk along the top of a Roman Wall

by BertieB

The main section of the Roman wall in Verulam Park is enclosed by a fence, but if you walk directly up hill from the Hypocaust (worth a visit in itself, if you ignore the brutally ugly building which shelters it), you will come to a wood. Enter the end of the wood and follow the path. As the land around you falls away, you will realise you are walking on the top of the old wall.

After 200 metres or so, you will com upon the remains of a corner tower. Follow the wall round the corner, you are now on the exposed section of wall alongside the path into the park. Like a Roman soldier you can look down on the peasants below. You can walk right along to the ruined gateway, inside the fence. When you get to the end you will need to backtrack about 100metres to get out again.

The Ziggurat

by graeme83

This is actually my favourite building in St. Albans. Located very close to the train station, it is a reflective glass building of offices. I got very excited as a child when I saw this building as I thought it looked like something out of the TV show Dallas, albeit a bit smaller ;) (Little things please little minds!).

It is a functioning office building, so you are not officially meant to go inside unless you have an appointment at one of the firms based here. Anyway, it looks a lot better on the outside than the inside.

Views from Clock Tower

by barryg23

It costs only 50p to climb the Clock Tower which is great value given the nice views you get from the top. There are 93 steps and it's an extremely narrow stairway. If you meet anyone going in the opposite direction, one of you will have to backtrack. There are a small number of exhibits on the ground floor, a few more on another floor about halfway up, as well as a small room showing the tower's famous bell, which has survived over 600 years.

From the top there are good views of St Albans, especially of the Cathedral to the south. You get a good idea of the geography of the city and a birds eye view of the market and the surrounding streets.

Visit the Market

by Wowmoment

There has been a Market in St Albans since at least 948 and today it is still possible to visit, a somewhat different Market.

Every Wednesday and Saturday there is a regular market, but this site will have information of other themed markets - Italian; Continental; Farmers etc.
