St Albans is a lovely city within Hertfordshire, the area benefits from great transport links into Central London. The Times voted St Albans as one of the best cities to live in, and we have to agree. Luckily we have modern apartments to rent in this lovely area, located opposite a train station which can get you into central London in less than 45 minutes! Sounds great, but there is more…
St Albans is popular with families for good reason, there are plenty of excellent state primary and secondary schools, as well as leading independent schools within the area.
There are 2 stations in St Albans, St Albans Abbey can get you into London within 45 minutes and trains from St Albans City can get you into London St Pancras in 22 minutes. This means you can get all the benefits of living outside of London, plenty of green space and a country feel whilst being able to easily commute into the capital in less than half an hour.
St Albans benefits from being a bustling small city and that comes with brilliant entertainment options, there is a retro/restored cinema within the town offering a luxury cinematic experience (The odyssey) a shopping centre and more restaurants than you can shake a dough stick at!
Quality of Life
People are moving out of London into St Albans for many reasons, however, the biggest one tends to be the quality of life it offers them and their families, you get the benefit of living in the country, with clean air and an eclectic mix of entertainment options, live music, great country pubs, lively bars, and a low crime rate.
Although St Albans is one of the pricier places to live in Hertfordshire, compared to London prices the area becomes a lot more affordable.
