St Albans Guide
St Albans is particularly renowned for its excellent schools which are, for many parents, a reason to move there in their own right. If Maple is very popular, other outstanding primary schools in the area include Bernards Heath, Fleetville, Aboyne Lodge, St Peter’s and the Abbey C of E. As for secondary schools, Sandringham and Beaumont are the most sought after.
For those who enjoy leisurely walks in all seasons, Verulamium Park is a must-see. The banks of its ornamental lake are perfect for a Sunday walk or a family picnic, and the site harbours a wide variety of water birds such as Herons, Swans, Mallards, Tufted Duckas and more. The park also features a leisure centre, with a swimming pool, a gym, a running track, a tennis court, fitness classes and a football pitch, as well as a golf course.
St Albans also offers great dining options, with hundreds of bars and restaurants to choose from. Whether you enjoy traditional cuisine, French delicacies, a Japanese meal, Indian restaurants or the occasional kebab, you’ll be sure to find the right place for a quick take-out or a fancy dinner.
