Take an amble through the ancient marketplace where people have been walking for hundreds of years. Take the route to the Abbey that Kings and Queens have trod in times gone by. This magnificent building, containing the shrine of St Alban, the first British Christian martyr, stands proudly dominating the city’s skyline. Explore one of the finest examples of a Roman theatre in Britain.
All this and much more can be seen on the guided walking tours. Our website lists our programme of walks for the year, along with a description of each walk. The City of St Albans Tour Guides was founded in 1964. A training programme is undertaken by guides covering both historical knowledge and practical guiding techniques. Most walks start outside the Clock Tower in St Albans.
City walks, including ghost walks, cost £5 per adult and £2 per child (5-15, under 5s free). Please note that all Ghost Walks MUST be pre-booked through our website.
