St Albans

I’m sharing pictures from St. Albans. I’ve been there before, but this time we spent a bit more time there, so I’ve made a highlights-kind of post. We visited 2 museums and went to the nunnery, where the pictures of the ruins are from. Also the Clock Tower in the centre was a must-see and the views from above are really lovely. Besides, by chance, we went to the vegan market on a Sunday and got lots of goodies. I bought cosmetics and food. It was a really good event, with a lot of different stalls, great diversity.

Last time I blogged about this lovely city was back in 2018, here are the highlights from then.

Enjoy the picture!

  1. Ooh, I’ve never visited those museums! They look exciting! I have performed at St Albans Abbey with the Hatfield Philharmonic orchestra but never explored though I did visit the shops!

  2. What a charming city! I love the clock tower and those mosaic floors are exquisite. The bones, as well. The aerial views are especially interesting and give a good scope of it all! The museums look fascinating, too.

  3. It looks like you had a gorgeous day weather-wise! I love the ruins and the clock tower. Browsing the vegan market would have been fun, too. Do those bones belong to anyone in particular or are they just a random skeleton?

    Thanks for sharing the link to the earlier post, as well.

    1. In St. Albans it rained every morning for a week (or so it seemed), but by 10-11 it was nice and clear. 🙂

      The bones are of a Roman man, in his 50s. The lead coffin was beautifully decorated, it’s the one that appears in the picture. Romans were generally cremated, so he must have been of a high social status to have a lead coffin like this.
      They also have a man and a woman in matching coffins, so they must have been married.
