Location

 

The joy of Straw House's apartments, is that all of them are situated at the heart of St Albans' picturesque old town.


This is city-centre living at its best, with the town's famous market and bustling shops literally on the doorstep.


Within a few minutes' walk, you can enjoy the beauty of Verulamium Park in all seasons, with its lake, Roman ruins, mosaics and museum.


The Inn on the Park is always popular a choice, while just outside the gates The Waffle House, located in a working 16th century watermill, has a tempting range of sweet and savoury goodies on offer.


Visiting St Albans Cathedral is a must. Its impressive structure dominates the town and marks the place where Alban, Britain's first saint, was martyred over 1,700 years ago.


St Alban's shrine is a site of national pilgrimage, but the architecture alone is worth a visit. In addition to some wonderful medieval wall paintings, the cathedral boasts the longest nave in England, the stunning stained glass Rose Window, and a host of other features.


Not far from the cathedral is the town's medieval clock tower; built in the early 1400s as a symbol of resistance against the power of the abbot.


The 93 steep steps are not for the faint-hearted, but if you manage them, the views are fantastic.


Also within easy walking distance, is the newly refurbished art deco cinema - The Odyssey. The comfortable seats, licensed bar and mix of new and classic movies, made this an instant success in the town.


St Albans proudly claims to have more pubs per square mile than any other town in Britain, including Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, which was built in the 11th century. Situated on the edge of the park and close to the cathedral, there are reputedly tunnels stretching from there to the beer cellar!


But if pubs aren't your thing, St Albans offers a truly impressive range of bars and restaurants to suit every taste and wallet. Whether you want cocktails and nibbles, fine dining, restaurants with gardens, restaurants with views, or just a steaming bowl of noodles, St Albans has it all - and all in walking distance of Straw House's collection of luxury apartments.

 

The road and rail links make St Albans an ideal base from which to travel.


The M1, A1 and M25 are all easily accessible, while the town's rail links provide fast, frequent services both north and south.


Fast trains into London take just 18 minutes, arriving at St Pancras with easy connections to the City, London Gatwick Airport and Brighton, as well as the Eurostar to Brussels and Paris.


To the north, St Albans offers excellent rail links to Bedford and Luton, with Luton Airport Parkway just 11 minutes on a fast train.
