***Visitor Access from Tuesday 30th May***
From Tuesday 30th May, the footpath between the Abbey Orchard and Sumpter Yard will close due to building works taking place at St Albans Cathedral. We understand that this will be an inconvenience to those who regularly use the footpath and we would like to apologise to those affected.

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 warmly look forward to welcoming you.
