St. Albans is an English Cathedral City in Hertfordshire with over 2,000 years of history. It was once the third biggest city in Roman Britain. It is part of the commuter belt, north of London (check out my London guides here). The cathedral features medieval wall paintings, and we had the pleasure of viewing some Morris dancing at the entrance. Verulamium Park has ornamental lakes, the city’s ancient Roman wall, and remains of mosaics. St Albans is a unique English city with plenty of green park space, many attractions with countryside surroundings. Now known for plenty of places to eat and drink, and being only 20 minutes from Central London.

Craft & Cleaver

The full-stop to our day in St Albans was dinner and drinks at Craft & Cleaver. As the name of the restaurant suggests, this place serves craft beers from independent breweries, cocktails with a twist, and great quality American BBQ/Grill style food. The platter we shared was delicious, while the staff were friendly and knowledgeable with their drink suggestions. We hope to come back to try the peanut butter tequila!
