The day will begin with a guided tour of St Albans Cathedral, which is the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain. The Cathedral stands over the place where Alban, Britain's first saint, was
buried after giving his life for his faith over 1700 years ago. At 85 metres in length, the Cathedral has the longest nave in England and has one of the oldest and most extensive series of medieval wall paintings surviving today.
You will then have free time for lunch (local cafés and restaurants available). At 2pm we will visit St Albans Museum + Gallery, which was opened in June 2018. A private talk with Curator Sarah Keeling will focus on the transformation of St Albans Town Hall & Courthouse into a leading centre for arts and culture at the heart of one of Britain’s most historic cities. There will also be the opportunity to visit and soak up the atmosphere in the building’s beautifully restored historic spaces, such as, the octagonal courtroom and subterranean cells.
