I’ve mentioned Verulamium Park in my previous post . It’s a fantastically pretty park on the site of the old Roman city of Verulamium, with landmarks peppered around (and some in) it, and a VERY nice lake.
St.Albans Cathedral sits on the west of the lake, The Watermill on it’s North, with a stream running downwards from the Mill parallel to the lake, the Verulamium Museum (and the Roman Theatre) somewhere North West, and The Hypocaust West within the park itself.
Remy and I walked along the East side of the lake upwards to Verulamium Museum (in the previous post). So after leaving the Hypocaust, we strolled towards to lake within the park, with its lolling hills and occasional clumps of trees. The St.Albans Cathedral could be seen on top of a hill across the lake, looking rather grand and impressive. If you ignore the corny music from the children’s water-thingy, people having picnics and kids running around, you can almost imagine yourself being transported a few hundred years back.
Note of advice: Go during non-school holidays if you’re not too keen on kiddies tripping you up and screaming your head off…. But the downside would be the lack of that ice cream truck around the corner.
