Living in St Albans

With a history stretching back thousands of years, a historic city center and great transport links to London, St Albans has long been a popular choice for globally minded people relocating to the London area.

Some of the city’s most iconic landmarks are the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Albans and the medieval clock tower, all of which are evidence of the city’s rich history and the important part that it has played in British life. As well as historic sites, St Albans also boasts the beautiful Verulamium Park which covers more than 100-acres of open parkland in the heart of the city.
