The English cathedral city of St Albans has plenty to offer those seeking a break closer to home. The cathedral is of course the main attraction and has the longest nave in Britain. There are daily tours of the cathedral but for something truly memorable, candlelit tours take place on selective evenings throughout the year.
At the Verulamium Museum, you’ll be able to see another side to St Albans. The museum explores the city’s Roman history and contains mosaics and artefacts. The best way to access the museum is through Verulamium Park, an expanse of greenery with a lake sitting in the middle and the River Ver flowing through the bottom. One of Hertfordshire’s best kept secrets is the Mosquito Aircraft Museum located on the city’s outskirts. The museum celebrates the de Havilland Mosquito and there are several full-size aircrafts on display.
While in the area, why not take a trip to Hatfield House? The former home of Queen Elizabeth I can’t be missed and is ideal for those wishing to discover more about England’s history.
