Overview

Verulamium Park is a public park in the City of St Albans, Hertfordshire. Along with being a wide open area for recreational purposes, the park includes all that is left of a Roman settlement from which the park takes it's name. The large amount of history on view in the park has resulted in a museum dedicated to the Historic Roman heritage upon which St Albans has been built. The park also includes a long list of facilities including; Tennis courts, sand courts, football and cricket pitches, An athletics track and field facility, a golf course, childrens play area, outdoor childrens Splash Park, a large leisure facility called westminster lodge Leisure Centre which contains a gym and indoor swimming pool, a cafe, a large lake fed by the River Ver, plenty of provision for picnics and family activities and what is thought to be the oldest and one of the most famous public houses in England called The Fighting Cocks. Overlooking the entire area is the St Albans Abbey, a large cathedral dating back to 1077AD. The park is an epicentre of greenery and wildlife and it is a hub of social and recreational activity that the people of St Albans can be extremely proud of.

Wonderful place for family outing.. Lake, River Ver, Roman Wall, Roman Mosaic - all in one place. Car park is crowded... costs £1.6 for 3 hours. Need to walk outside the Verulamium area to visit the Roman theatre.

Having seen the cathedral I then paid a visit to the Verulamium museum. I always think that what the Romans accomplished is amazing. We appeared to revert to mud huts after they left our shores! This is a fascinating walk through time and well worth...More

A lovely park. I went with my partner but we noticed that there was plenty for kids to do. The roman ruins are interesting. Just a shame we didn't bother to take a picnic! Also visited the oldest pub in England 'Ye Olde Fighting Cocks'...More

Be sure to purchase a separate ticket. Because it is outside London, you cannot get there with an Oyster card and could face a penalty if you do so by accident.
