Join our regular guide, Paul Surma, on a late summer walk in one of England’s historic cities: St Albans. The itinerary includes a fine cathedral and some of the oldest buildings in the city, from a 9th Century Barn, to 16th Century Coaching Inns and a well-preserved residential street which includes many Grade 2 listed buildings.

After a short break, we will continue our journey into history, to see a 900 year old church, the remains of the Sopwell Nunnery and a local nature reserve; walk along part of the River Ver; and climb the stairs onto the Alban Way, walking past the old London Road station (pictured), to see the Midland Arch and visit the surviving platform at Sanders. We will end up at one of the surviving Midland Railway signal boxes.

We meet at St Albans Museum and Art Gallery in St Peter’s Street at 11.20 to commence our walk at 11.30; and we will finish between 14.30 and 15.00.

The cost of the walk is a modest £10. You must be a member of the London Transport Museum Friends to participate.
