About St Albans
The cathedral city of St Albans, in Hertfordshire, has a long history dating back to Roman times which can be observed in the city's Roman remains and beautiful medieval architecture.

Remaining with the Roman theme, and just a short walk from the museum, is the Roman Theatre which is the only visible example of its kind in the United Kingdom. Its acoustics were perfectly suited to musical and dramatic performances. Close by are the foundations of a Roman town house, a secret shrine and a row of Roman shops.
