So, it's a Clock Tower but this has some history attached and it's well worth the cardio challenge of getting to the top to have a look out over the skyline and take in the views. Narrow steps though so be careful. The staff are knowledgeable and seem happy to share their knowledge with those interested enough to enquire. We have lived in St. Albans for some time but had never visited the Clock Tower until my mum came to visit - well worth it we thought but have to say that the experience.

I visited a relative of mine in St Albans, After a hearty lunch we decided to walk it off. I enjoy walking and scenery so first we jumped in the car and after about 10 minutes came to a well manicured park in a place called St Michael's. After parking we walked to an estate which is where Gorhambury house is located. A quiet road runs through the middle and we proceeded to walk up it either side of us sheep grazing in the field. The weather was a bonus being a warm, bright day.
