St Albans is a small city just 20 minutes from London and is the perfect place for those looking for a compromise between urban and country living. One of Britain’s oldest cities with a pretty historic centre to match, The Sunday Times recently named it as the best place in the South East to live, and its popularity has firmly established it as the gold standard of commuter belt hotspots.
