Spend time enjoying the tranquil oasis of the exquisite grounds, with their lake, and enjoy a cocktail or a glass of champagne in the elegantly appointed bar or on the terrace overlooking the gardens. You'll also want to explore the history and heritage of St Albans and a good place to start is the Verulamium Museum which has a splendid range of exhibits describing what life was like in the town two millennia ago in Roman times. The Cathedral, with its glorious mixture of Romanesque and Gothic features, is also well worth a visit.

The Lake Restaurant serves modern bristish cuisine and is set in an elegant orangery-style room overlooking the garden.
