St Albans that is located in the south part of Hertfordshire in England, is a city that is close to the centre of London - just about 22 miles away, or about 35 kilometres away. St Albans was once a pre-Roman settlement that was called Verlamion - it got its name from the ancient British people who lived there, who were part of the Catuvellauni tribe.

St Albans became the first major town in the Roman road called Watling Street, and after that expanded and turned into a Roman town called Verulamium.

The city is nowadays named after the first British martyr - Saint Albans, who was beheaded as early as 324 AD. St Albans was once a market town and a place of a historical cathedral, but now serves more as a place to sleep in or live in, for the people who work and study in nearby London.

When visiting St Albans you need to be prepared for the type of climate that is experienced there - which is an oceanic climate, which is very much like the rest of the United Kingdom, so you need to dress worm but have short clothes for the sunny days.

You need to plan your vacation based on the time of year when it's the most warm, so you will be able to visit the city and nearby London, and even other points and cities of attraction, without having to worry about the rain or poor visibility.

St Albans is known for its cultural life, so when visiting it you will be privileged to attend the many concerts that are being held in the city, as well as the many theatre productions you can enjoy in places like St Albans Abbey or the Maltings Arts Theatre.

You can also choose to visit St Albans for its many historical buildings - due to its rich history, which includes the many churches in the area.

Those churches include the St Saviour's church and St. Peter's church. You can also enjoy various choirs when visiting the churches - like the St Albans Chamber Choir, or the St Albans Bach Choir, and many more.

If visiting churches and enjoying the local scenery is not to your liking, you can watch the various sporting events the city has to offer, which include the country's oldest indoor skating parks, which offer activities for both skateboarders and roller-skating. The skating parks also offer outdoor ramps.

If you prefer other types of sports - more traditional, you can enjoy the local football matches the city has to offer - which include the local team St Albans City FC which has a stadium located at the edge of Clarence Park. The team is famous for playing in the Nationwide Conference Division.

You can also view the rugby games conducted by the St Albans Centurions rugby league club, which plays at Cotlandswick. This local team plays at the Rugby League Conference Premier South division, and are also known locally as the Cents. They are famous for becoming the national champions of the RLC Premier division.
