Verulamium Park, St Albans (07/08/16)

We’ve been to the playground in Verulamium Park in St. Albans a few times – it’s only 20 mins by car and the car park is free for a couple of hours on a Sunday. The park itself is large, and features Roman remains dotted here and there.

The playground. Couldn’t get a closer pic because of all the kids there, but has a decent spread of climbing equipment for older and younger kids.

There’s also a paddling pool with a cafe next to it. The one time we took our little one’s swimming gear he didn’t want to paddle and it was very busy, but it’s a great feature.

It’s a short (but quite steep) walk up from one end of the lake into town. This way you pass the rear of the cathedral, whose grounds are also a great place for (supervised) kids to play.

We’ve barely explored the lovely city centre, but have reviewed a couple of child-friendly cafés near to the cathedral: The Bakehouse and George Street Canteen.
