Explore St Albans Cathedral

Do not miss St Albans Cathedral on your day trip to Herts. It is truly magnificent and located in the centre of Herts.  Visitors can look forward to great photography opportunities. The cathedral itself boasts an interesting mix of architectural styles. It is also worth joining one of the expert FREE guided tours to learn the intriguing history of the building and the many people who are part of it.

This summer young children are invited to join in one of the cathedral's family discovery mornings, or get creative at an arts and craft workshop. Alternatively, why not take your day trip to new heights with one of the cathedral’s tower tours?  Even better, on 13th and 24th August visitors can climb right up the top of the tower and take in awesome views across St Albans!
