Roaming around St Albans

A couple of friends and I decided to catch up and roam around St Albans in Hertfordshire. Naturally our first stop was food! The Waffle House in St Albans, Hertfordshire, is pretty famous where I live and for good reason. It is located within a 16th Century watermill and has the most beautiful décor inside the restaurant that reminded me of old England.

The menu is split into two sections – savoury and sweet waffles. I wasn’t feeling particularly adventurous, so I played it safe and chose sweet.  You cannot go wrong with a Belgian waffle covered in melted chocolate and sprinkled with delicious hazelnuts…YUM.

Without sounding too travel brochure-y, St Albans is a beautiful place that is rich with history and culture. The St Albans Cathedral is a short walk from the Waffle House, so if you gave up chocolate for Lent but broke it with a chocolate waffle, this is the place to go to, to confess your sins! Apparently, this amazing Cathedral has a 10-year waiting list for weddings, so get your names down quickly ladies!

For all the Classics geeks like me, there is a Roman theatre and the Verulamium Museum where you can see ancient Roman mosaics and pottery. I have been here on a school trip and with my parents and will definitely be making a visit soon, so watch this blog space.
