St Albans at Christmas
The perfect city destination for groups looking for an alternative, more boutique-style, European Christmas Market. The tour starts in the morning, with groups gathering at St Albans Cathedral. Relax after your journey and enjoy a mince pie and mulled wine in the café, before taking a special festive themed tour of the stunning Cathedral building.
After lunch, your group can explore the most picturesque area of the city with your City Guide, including the medieval Clock Tower and the ancient marketplace, before heading back to the Christmas Market to enjoy a glass of gluhwein.
Available: Throughout the Christmas Market opening dates. (Please note that the Cathedral holds many events in the lead up to Christmas and so some dates some or all parts of the Cathedral may be unavailable for tours.)
Duration: Half day or full day
Points to note: due to the historic nature of the area, some pavements are uneven, particularly the area around Vintry Garden. The Market is extremely busy at weekends, and so we advise you to bring groups on weekdays for a more relaxed visit. The Charter Market, with 160 stalls, takes place each Wednesday and Saturday, and offers a vast range of non-Christmassy goods.
Key dates: Carols on the Hour takes place at St Albans Cathedral on 16th December 2017.
And there's more: Aladdin, this year's pantomime at the Alban Arena, takes place from Thursday 7th December 2017 to Sunday 7th January 2018. There'll be comedy, singing, dancing, stunning sets, dazzling costumes, and a top-quality West End cast! It's the perfect way to finish your day!
