Parking in St Albans

Named after the first British saint, St Albans has been a key strategic location from Celtic times onwards. It is probably best known for its importance during the Roman occupation, when it was renamed Verulamium, which in the native Celtic language means ‘Settlement by the Marsh’. Today, it’s a busy market town that’s also a popular commuter town for London. Parking in St Albans can be a challenge, so the centrally located NCP St Albans car parks are a real benefit for visitors and regular users alike.

Points of interest

Look anywhere in St Albans and you’ll see the ghosts of ancient Rome. The Roman Theatre of Verulamium, which is opposite the museum, is a well preserved remain that demonstrates how wealthy St Albans was during the Roman period. The city has its quirky aspects too, with a delightful organ museum with working pub organs. Bringing us right up to date is the de Havilland Aircraft museum in London Colney, just a few miles from the centre of the city. For all central attractions, park at any one of St Albans’ nine NCP car parks, including pre-bookable spaces at Drover’s Way and Russell Avenue.

Attraction & event parking in St Albans

St Albans-Cathedral-City-Attraction

St Albans Cathedral

Home to the longest true nave in Britain, the Cathedral and Abbey of St Albans has deep roots. It was originally the site of a Benedictine abbey founded in the 8th century, and eventually grew to be the largest abbey in England. Henry VIII put paid to that in the 16th century, and it was turned into a cathedral in 1877. Today, it’s a central feature of the city, located just a few minutes’ walk from Keyfield Terrace and London Road NCP car parks.

Shopping-Generic-City-Attraction

Christopher Place Shopping Centre

Small but with plenty of independent traders packed into a relatively compact space, Christopher Place Shopping Centre is one of the city’s favourite retail centres. It’s focused on independent traders, so while there is a sprinkling of high street names, you’ll mainly find top fashion brands, small boutiques and shops selling more bespoke gifts and cosmetics. It’s a friendly, relaxed centre that also benefits from being close to a cluster of NCP St Albans car parks, including London Road car park.​

Shopping-Generic-City-Attraction

The Maltings

The Maltings Shopping centre is one of the larger retail areas in the city, open seven days a week  and is packed full of well known high street brands, restaurants and entertainment venues. The adjoining Maltings Art theatre is one of the main theatrical venues in the city and puts on a great programme of shows suitable for all ages, all year round. The easiest way to guarantee a space that’s also close to the Maltings is to pre-book a spot at Drover’s Way or Russell Avenue car parks.

Museum-Art-City-Attraction

Verulamium Museum

To discover the hidden secrets of this complex and historically very important city, pay a visit to the Verulamium Museum. This excellent museum documents the history of Roman influences in the city, including mosaics, artefacts from the countless archaeological digs carried out in the city over the years, and exhibitions documenting life under Roman rule. You’ll also find a charming small wildlife garden outside, which is a surprisingly tranquil little spot on a hot summer day. Park in the Bricket Road North NCP St Albans car park and you’re just a short walk from the museum.​

Park-Generic-City-Attraction

Verulamium Park

Set in 100 acres of stunning mature parkland, Verulamium Park is one of St Albans’ real gems. It’s a popular venue for concerts and events, and frequent excavations throughout the lifetime of the park have thrown up hundreds of artefacts dating from both the Celtic and the Roman periods. Park at Verulamium, London Road or Keyfield Terrace car parks and you’re only a few minutes’ walk from its boating lake, wide open expanses and leafy promenades.​
