St Albans is a fabulous historical city. The Romans founded one of their most important centres here; Boudicca sacked it and razed it to the ground. And 100s of years later there are so many remnants of that past to explore. If you love a city steeped in history then come and explore.

St Albans is a market city in the United Kingdom. It’s located approximately 20 miles to the north of London, in the county of Hertfordshire. Its proximity to London makes it an ideal city to live and commute to London. It’s serviced by a fast, and somewhat reliable train service. However, the downside is St Albans is one of the most expensive cities to live in within the UK.
