Day Tripping to St. Albans

Before starting the daily grind of working life, I took the opportunity to do a week-day day-trip to St. Albans – a pretty town just north of London that was first founded by the Romans in the 40s (40AD that is – old skool). The town is famous for its huge cathedral, which began being constructed in the 8th century, and has been rebuilt in parts and added to over the years. The result of this is that you can see many different arcitectural styles by walking from one end of the cathedral to the other.

St. Albans is also home to Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, which holds the Guiness Book of Records’ title of the oldest pub in England. Apparently, beers have been dispensed here since the 13th century.
