***Visitor Information - Saturday 23rd June***
Due to the Alban Pilgrimage and a change in service patterns, there will be no guided tours on Saturday 23rd June. Our Guides will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the Cathedral and its history. While you're here, take a look at our Exhibition or attend one of the services celebrating Alban.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Welcome to St Albans Cathedral
This is the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain and stands over the place where Alban, Britain's first saint, was buried after giving his life for his faith over 1700 years ago. Down the centuries, countless pilgrims have come to honour the saint’s sacrifice and offer their prayers at his shrine – and they still come in their thousands today.
We look forward to welcoming you
