***Visitor Information***

In order to begin work on our wonderful new Exhibition area opening June 2019, sections of the North side

of the Cathedral will be closed for several weeks.

We would like to thank visitors for their patience and understanding whilst this vital and exciting work is carried out.  

More information about our ongoing Alban, Britain's First Saint project can be found here.

 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
