Set in the rolling hills of the Hertfordshire countryside and just a stone's throw north of London, St Albans is a historic city with much to offer the visitor. Booking car hire in St Albans will help you to make the most of the city and its surroundings with easy access to the M25 and M1 and a short drive into London.

The cathedral and Abbey Church of St Albans dominate the ancient city and its roots as a centre of pilgrimage date back to the 3rd century. Today, many come to admire the impressive buildings and the Alban Pilgrimage is a modern day celebration or martyrdom using carnival to bring the stories to life...

However, there is more to the city and by opting for car rental you will be able to explore the area with ease. Within the town centre you'll find the clock tower dating back to the early 15th century, many buildings dating back three and four centuries still used by local businesses and as residences, as well as a well-respected street market on St Peter's Street which acts as a focal point to trading in the city each Wednesday and Saturday.

Within the city boundaries you will also find the Verulamium Museum which covers the Roman settlement which was built in the area. Here you'll find many relics including mosaics and a Roman theatre.

The Royal National Rose Society Gardens are also found locally, with fragrant blooms on show through the summer months. Butterfly World is also nearby and well worth a visit.

London's Luton (LTN) is the nearest airport to the city, reached via fast roads and the M1. You can pick up your hire car here or at one of a number of downtown locations in St Albans. To find the best price on car hire, use TravelSupermarket's search tool at the top of the page.
