Places to visit

Harry Potter World

When Harry Potter was launched in 1997 no one knew just how popular it would become. Just a mere seven miles away from the Red Lion Hotel Radlett are the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour, and with ample parking and food and drink facilities a day trip out is simple.

From features such as standing in the Great Hall, seeing all the costumes the cast wore, all the sketches that went into the design, all the magical creatures and even have a go at flying on a broomstick the Studios have something that will interest anyone.

There is fun for all the ages with activities books available for the children as well as in-depth boards by each display going into the details of how it was made and used. From watching all the Harry Potter films and being able to see it all come to life gives you a brilliant insight as to how the films are made.

St Albans Cathedral

The Cathedral dominates the city’s skyline from every approach. Its architecture is a blend of many different periods, and its great tower includes Roman bricks salvaged from the ruins of Verulamium. It is best known for the shrine of St Alban, Britain’s first Christian martyr, which continues to attract pilgrims from far and wide.

The present church, begun in 1077 and the largest building in the land at the time, replaced an earlier Benedictine abbey founded by King Offa in ad 793. Today the Cathedral is a busy centre for church, cultural and civic events.

The Abbot’s Kitchen is located in the Chapter House and is perfect for delicious hot or cold lunches, afternoon teas and refreshments. Other facilities include guided tours, exhibitions, concerts, shops and a warm welcome for visitors of all ages.

St Albans Traditional Street Market

The market is steeped in History with a special Royal Charter granted in 1553. However, the market is well documented as far back as the 9th century. The current day market is firmly established in the city centre and runs the length of St Peters Street offering an excellent shopping experience to compliment the established retail stores. The market takes place every Wednesday and Saturday, throughout the year.

Verulamium Museum

Award-winning museum, displaying beautiful objects from the Roman City of Verulamium, featuring superb mosaics and re-created Roman rooms giving the visitor an opportunity to discover the life and times of a major Roman city. Legion XIIII, a re-enactment group, occupies the galleries on the second weekend of each month explaining the tactics and equipment of the Roman army.

Roman Theatre

Just a short walk from Verulamium Museum is the Roman Theatre, the only visible example in Britain. It was linked to two temples dedicated to Romano-British gods and would have been used primarily at times of religious festivals but also for armed combat and wild beast shows. Its fine acoustics were perfectly suited to musical and dramatic performances. Close by are the foundations of a Roman town house, a secret shrine and a row of Roman shops.
