Change of starting point for St Albans City Walks 

With effect from 10th January 2018, all city walks in St Albans will revert to the start point in front of the Old Town Hall in St Peter's Street. The building will shortly re-open as the new museum and gallery, when the current hoarding and scaffolding around it will all be removed.
Walks which currently start outside Verulamium Museum (Fishpool Street - Rags and Riches and A Roman City Revealed) are unaffected.

Roman Soldiers due to return to Verulamium Museum 

St Albans Tour Guides will be presenting further performances by the two Roman soldiers in 2018, following their successful performances in August and October this year. In August, Laurentius Calvus Petronius put in an appearance, and two months later his friend Bernardus Julius Frontinus  came along to the museum. 

They will be coming back in 2018, and the dates are listed in the 2018 Calendar of Public Walks and Activities. They tell us all about their lives as  soldiers, what it was like to be in the army, and why they chose to settle here at Verulamium. They will be dressed up in their uniform and weaponry, and  will also show us what they keep in their satchels. These performances are aimed at primary school children, although adults will find them interesting as well.
