Steeped in history and voted as one of the UK’s best places to live, St Albans has a reputation that will work in its favour from the outset.
Easy access to London by train makes it a great commuter city, while offering a safe and highly attractive place to call home. Access to Luton and Heathrow airports provides a selling point for frequent travellers, as does the rail link to St Pancras International in just 20 minutes.
Young families will enjoy its three designated conservation areas and its abundance of good schools, both state and private, while its lively entertainment scene will be welcome news to those making the move away from London. Road links to the north will please those working in the opposite direction.
