St Albans – a Roman town experience

St Albans

I love nothing more than traveling on good weather. As I checked the weather prognosis and they said it was sunny, I decided to go to St Albans, in the lovely county of Hertfordshire. My traveling map included not only St Albans but also Watford, Barnet, Hatfield and Hemel Hempstead. As for my choice in hotels, I had a hard time deciding between Quality Hotel (232-236 London Road) and Clarion Collection Hotel (Ryder House, 27 Holywell Hill). I chose the second, as it seemed more suitable to my liking. As I did not want to drive my own car, I selected a taxi cab from a reputable company. They also recommended an airport taxi to handle my transfer from St Albans. Also, they informed me about the possibility of using a wheelchair accessible taxi, in case I had special needs.

Once I arrived in St Albans, I checked in at the hotel and proceeded towards seeing the major attractions. First time, I went to The Cathedral & Abbey Church, as I had read a lot about it and I wanted to see it. The cathedral was simply amazing and I took a lot of great photos, so I could show it to my folks. I also went to visit the Kingsbury Watermill, as there is nothing more I love in the world than windmills. Let me tell you that St Albans is great and that it has so much to offer. I arranged for one of those executive cars to take me back to the hotel, as I was more tired than I would have imagined.

I decided to reserve an airport taxi for my trip between St Albans and Gatwick airport; the driver covered the 64 miles distance in 1 hour and 9 minutes and I paid the affordable sum of £115 for a saloon car. I was informed that I could also travel from St Albans to Luton airport; the 12 miles journey would have been covered in 19 minutes and I would have paid £25 for a saloon car. On my way to Gatwick airport, I stopped at Travelodge (High Street, Leatherhead) and at The Red Lion Hotel (Royal Lane, Uxbridge). I also stopped to dine at Bell (Bell Lane, Leatherhead) and at Swan & Bottle (Oxford Road, Uxbridge).
