Visitor Information


From Monday 25th March, the Cedar Tree door will be closed to allow work to begin on the entrance to our new Welcome Centre.  Entry to the Cathedral will be through the West End and Abbot's Door (see map for details).  

We would like to thank our visitors for their patience whilst this work is carried out.


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
