Lovely cathedral, partly ruined by Victorian re-building after the nave collapsed but still well worth a visit. It is a nice old market town and well worth a visit - the markets are on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Plenty of Roman remains to see as well...More

I have the pleasure of working in this amazing building. Every time I visit I'm taken back with the architecture and craftsmanship of the Abbey. As a St.Albans resident it makes me proud everytime I visit. Defiantly worth a visit.

We spent a long time walking around this beautiful building. A real contrast between the 13th century wall paintings and the more recent parts. We enjoyed a tea break in the temporary cafe and then continued. Lots to see, from the ceilings, to the embroideries....More

Friendly. Interesting place. Great tours. Quality worship. If in St Albans then take a look. I've been here plenty of times. The choral worship is great if it's your thing. The refectory offers food - jacket potatoes, soup etc. There is a library too

Beautiful cathedral, they were setting up for a show when we went so atmosphere was a bit spoiled. Nice grounds.
