The city of St Albans is a popular choice for London commuters. Offering quick and easy access into London, whilst being able to live in beautiful and historic surroundings. It’s no wonder that new builds in St Albans are being snapped up!
The city has a rich history, which can be experienced through its stunning architecture. With the Roman Walls, the clock tower, and in particular The Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban. It’s the longest cathedral in the country and now includes art displays and artifacts from the cathedral’s history.
Verulamium Park is directly next to the cathedral and is arguably one of the best features of St Albans. With around 100 acres of green space, it’s a well-loved space where you can relax, exercise and play. There’s a model boating lake, Roman wall remains and a cafe and play area to sit down and enjoy the sights.
The city has a thriving community spirit with markets twice weekly that have run since around 1553. There are also many independent shops that are well supported, as well as a number of initiatives to help improve the local area. If you’re planning to support the local pub you’ll be spoilt for choice as St Albans is said to have the most pubs per person than anywhere else in the country, with many also being independently owned. The city also claims to have the oldest pub in the country (Ye Olde Fighting Cocks).
The local schools are a huge draw as to why people look for new homes in St Albans. Highly rated as one of the best places to raise a family, the many ‘outstanding’ and ‘good’ Ofsted rated schools are definitely one of the reasons young families are looking to move to the city.
As mentioned, a big draw of the city is its impeccable transport links. By train, you can be in Kings Cross in just 25 minutes, with trains every 15 minutes. If you prefer to drive then central London takes only an hour. Looking a little closer to home, Hemel Hempstead is only a 15-minute drive away and Luton is only a 20-minute drive away.
