Discover the story of St Albans Cathedral.

The story of St Albans starts almost 2000 years ago with the Romans. St Albans Cathedral has a number of trails and workshops to explore the different periods of history since then, both on a local and national level.

Their trails include topics on Alban & the Romans, Saxons, Vikings, Invaders & Settlers, Pilgrimage and the Dissolution of the Monasteries. They have a number of art and craft workshops to accompany these too, including Roman Mosaics, Saxon Food, Tudor Music & Dance, Tudor Food, Medieval Clay Tiles, Illuminated Lettering, Brass Rubbing, Victorian Classroom and Victorian Pastimes.

Most schools combine two activities, usually a trail and a workshop, to make a whole day of their visit. Trails include drama and costumes to help pupils develop their learning, whilst most workshops allow them to create a piece of artwork to take home at the end of the visit.
