Verulamium
The Green Guide
St Michael’s Street, St Albans AL3 4SW
Verulamium was one of the largest cities in Roman Britain. It was founded in AD 49, and by around 940 was little more than a "refuge for thieves, body snatchers and women of ill repute". The site is now a public park, called Verulamium Park. The museum provides a fascinating glimpse into Roman times. Only the ruins of the Roman Theatre remain. The hypocaust (central heating system) and remains of the fortifications are also of interest.
