20 FEB 2020 - St Albans Treasure Trail

There are so many treasure trails in St Albans but one of the most historical can be found at the heart of the City. The St Albans Treasure Trail Family Discovery Morning around St Albans Abbey on the 20th February 2020 from 10:00 am until 12:30 is a great half-term activity.  

The St Albans treasure trail will help younger visitors uncover a host of hidden treasures on an exciting adventure of discovery around the Cathedral during this free Family Discover Morning. There will also be lots of other arts, crafts and games to take part in. The activity is suitable for children aged 3-11, but all children must be accompanied by an adult.

If you are new to St Alban's or thinking of moving to St Albans or Harpenden it is really worth getting to know the Abbey as it is a focal point for lots of activities in the City. The Abbey 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 Saint, which continues to attract pilgrims from far and wide.

The Abbey is a great place to visit whatever time of year. It has the longest nave in England and an extensive collection of medieval wall paintings, an exciting programme of activities and events and a brand-new interactive exhibition with artefacts, audiovisuals and an exciting digital tour of the Abbey.

In addition to the St Albans Treasure Trail, there are a team of trained volunteer Guides who welcome visitors to the Cathedral and lead-free Guided Tours: These tours start at the west door and typically take about an hour. Available daily for visitors at the following times:

11.30 Monday to Saturday, 14.30 Sunday to Friday, 14.00 Saturday.
