St Albans Cathedral is used as a place of Christian worship every day of the year, but why was it built, how is it used and what do Christians believe?

Their Signs & Symbols trail, Cathedral as a Place of Worship trail and Celebrations trail explore all of these themes and more in an interactive and engaging way. At Christmas and Easter, they also run their seasonal activities to explore these major Christian festivals.

They have a number of art and craft workshops to accompany these too, including Stained Glass, Clay Tiles and Brass Rubbing.

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.
