Historically, St Albans was the first major town on the old Roman road known as Watling Street. At this time, the local settlement was called Verulamium. Following the Roman withdrawal, it became an important part of the Anglo-Saxon Waeclingas tribe.
Perhaps most notably, two battles of the War of the Roses took place nearby. The First Battle of St Albans was fought within St Albans itself in 1455, while the Second Battle occurred in 1461.
Before the 20th century, St Albans was little more than a rural market town. The railway had arrived relatively late, in 1858, with Queen Victoria issuing a second royal charter, thus granting city status, in 1877.
The area eventually found itself within the London commuter belt. Indeed, to this day, many local residents continue to venture further afield for work. When it comes to Afternoon Tea St Albans establishments, on the other hand, you don’t have to go far at all!
