Travel Tips for St Albans

The best toilets in town

by pippap

Now that McDonalds in the High Street has closed down and the underground public conveniences are still in need of some serious renovation, where should you GO in St Albans?
Head for Waterstone's Book Shop on the High Street and take advantage of the excellent cafe, the wide range of books and the fine facilities including disabled and baby changing!!!

Dough(n't) feed the Birds

by St_Vincent

You should definitely bring a camera and get some shots of the wildlife around the Verulamium Lake and the River. This is more of a tip about what NOT to pack on a visit to the Verulamium Park. Although there is a temptation to do so please do not bring bread to feed to the ducks and birds around the lake as it does them more harm than good. Bird seed or other specialist bird food is better and can be bought from the Inn on the Park cafe quite cheaply.

Sopwell Nunnery

by Willettsworld

This romantic ruin is all that remains of the Tudor mansion built around 1560 by Sir Richard Lee, a soldier and royal engineer, granted the land by Henry VIII in 1540. Lee's first house was built on top of the medieval nunnery, which itself dated back to 1140. It had been founded by the then abbot of St. Albans, Geoffrey de Gorham.

The new mansion followed the monastic plan, using the church for the hall and the cloisters became the courtyard. He even had the then London Road diverted away from the house. At the end of his life, it seems that he started a radical remodeling of the house to make it more fashionable and to add formal gardens.

Directions: SE of the cathedral off Cottonmill Lane near St Albans Abbey station.

A roman street?

by Mique

I was very lucky that due to the fact there was a new building put in place over the hypercaust whiich needed a new power cable, that there was a very small trench that the archeologist was allowed to excavate. And i had even more luck, he had some time to tell me a lot about the tranch, what they had already found in the past and more. Like the possible road and a corner of a house that just needed 20 centimeters of trench more to make sure it really was a corner. 20 centimeters he wasn't allowed to dig up. I offered to ' accidentally' stand to close to the edge of the trench. But he admitted that he had actually already done so once and that it would be difficult to explain a second time..

The place where he thought there might be an old roman road was much yellower in colour then the surounding earth. It was also of different composition and if you looked closely you could see 2 places where there was a small impression. Like a place where many cart wheels had used the road. It all sounded very plausable and it was fantastic to have this all explained so well.

Fleur-de-lys inn

by Mique

In a building on this site King John of France was held after he was captured at Poitiers in 1356.

In the early 15th century an inn was established here which has been enlarged throughout the centuries. But until today it is still an inn.

The small alleyway it is situated in is called French Row. Not sure if it has only to do with the fact that the king was held here.

I wanted to go back to ask because i started my exploration of St. Albans here in the morning. And at that time the inn wasn't opened yet. But i never made it back here...
