There's plenty more to see besides the Christmas Festival.

Visit the stunning new St Albans Museum + Gallery, with a range of exhibitions including Game Plan on tour from the V&A in London.
You could also include a festive tour of the city’s iconic Cathedral, exploring this magnificent building at Christmas, revealing quirky and little known festive facts along the way. Pre-tour refreshments when you arrive in St Albans can be booked at the Abbot’s Kitchen, located at the Cathedral.
Points to note: The Christmas Festival is expected to be extremely busy at weekends, and so we advise you to bring groups on weekdays (Tue - Fri) for a more relaxed visit. The Charter Market, with up to 150 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 15th December 2018.
