If you’re moving to St Albans from other regions of the UK, here’s some fascinating information about the area:
St Albans is an historic affluent Hertfordshire city based within the commuter belt of locations just north of Greater London, covering an area of 62 square miles.
According to figures published by the ONS, the population of St Albans was said to be in the region of 149,300 in mid-2020. With a growth rate of 0.6%, the city’s population is now estimated to be approximately 151,000.
The city’s name was given after Alban gave shelter to a stranger fleeing persecution, making him the first ever to receive a sainthood.
It’s believed the Hot Cross Bun originated from St Albans, where 14th-century monk Thomas Rocliffe created the ‘Alban Bun’ to give to the poor on Good Friday.
Widely known for its stunningly beautiful cathedral, the city was previously named Verulamium during Roman times, with records indicating it was the third largest British city within the empire. Just a stone’s throw away from Verulamium Park, one can find the city’s unique Roman era theatre.
St Albans is a highly desirable place to live, with excellent transport links direct into London, making it ideal for commuters.
However, with an average house price of £633,805, more than double the UK national average of £296,000, it is most certainly not the most affordable.
