The Cathedral & Abbey Church of Saint Alban
The Cathedral dominates the city’s skyline from every approach. Its architecture incorporates excellent examples from many different periods – from Norman to the Romans who used bricks salvaged from Verulam to build the Great Tower. It is best known for the Shrine of St Albans – Britain’s first Christian martyr. Light lunches and teas and coffees can be enjoyed at the “Café at The Abbey”, situated in the Chapter House.
08.30am – 17.45pm daily (No entry fee but a donation recommended)
Built between 1403 and 1412, The Clock Tower is the only medieval town belfry in England. After 600 years of use, one can still climb the 93 steps to the top of the Tower and enjoy magnificent views of the Cathedral and the historic city of St Albans.
