The central streets of St Albans will be taken over with 100 food and drink stalls and entertainment for all ages, including plenty of live music which adds vibrancy and fun as we celebrate our food and drink heros- it’s going to be brilliant.” 

 

Just 20 miles and 20 minutes by train from London St Pancras International and excellent road connections, St Albans is easily accessible, making it the perfect day or staycation destination.
