St Albans Heritage Open Days


abbeySt Albans Heritage Open Days, September 10th – 13th. Its one thing to read about the history of this city but to do a historic walking tour brings it so alive and will make you proud to be a resident here.

I experienced the historic walking tour, the Abbey Gateway tour, the Ryder Exhibition and the Spicer St Independent Chapel last weekend and would advise, that if you haven’t been before, then look out for the next Open Days and go along to one of the walks or buildings. It’s all free. Elizabeth, the historic walk guide, really knows her stuff and has a great sense of humour!
