  • THE BEST THING ABOUT ST ALBANS IS THE TOTTY. TRUST THERE PROPER LOOSE!
  • The loooooovely people. oh darling. so friendly, especially in the X keys. The people embrace you as you walk past them in the street and then you drop to the floor with blood shooting from you tingling body. oh those were the days. cafe roma is also worth a mention. watch gotz dance in his lederhosen. more whiskey anyone? also has anyone mentioned miss lavin? she may teach maths but she's so jolly! watch her wobble as she laughs. all together now "NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS LAVIN'S THE BEEEEEST"
  • Near to Hatfield, it compliments the ambiance of the close industrial town.
  • me of course
  • hot girls with lip piercings, and working in cotswold outdoor where i provide service with a smile, oh and cottonmill jump spot.
  • the best things bout st albans are... my friends.... the music scene..... the pioneer..... going crazy and running through town in crazy clothes at 11pm and getting thrown up on by drunk people
  • Stumbling home trying to get your mates off the town hall roof and meeting friendly policeman!
  • Frank once got naked in Verulamium Park, and climb naked onto the Roman Wall! HELL YEAH!
  • The Woodctaft Folk, becoming a small cult in St. Albans Area! These empowered young people are the lifeblood of the town, and run St. Albans without anyone else knowing.
  • women
  • trains to london are quick and go late on fridays. the park is good. old pubs.
  • Clarence Park, the bandstand, The Fighting Cocks, the people, Wilkinsons, Verulamium Park, the lake, fields, the Market, the man who plays the accordion, H&H, railway bridges, the whole Incest thing going on, The Stud Room, The Firkin Sometimes, Brainfreeze, oaklands college, ties, oxfam, bookshops!

  • COOOOOOOL people. Woolfie the cat.
  • The people are ok apart from the Garage boys and the pubs are probably the main highlight. We are close to London and Watford which is great because both these places have a high freak content which means we can get away from all the cap-wearing trendies. and "magic cigarettes" are easily obtained. I havent encountered much snobbery myself.
  • The man who you can see dancing in just his pants in one of the houses in Jenning's road. Always a treat.. get a good seat on the podium in Verulam's field...
  • i get away with doing nothing nowadays
  • Being in the mosh pit down the front of the firkin when a really rocking band are playing, but only really in winter cause in summer everyone squashes out into the tiny little garden thing and ignores the band.
  • All my friends.
  • Local pubs Herons Book Shops 20 Mins by train to London
  • St. Albans has got really beautiful areas, especially by the lake. If you go to the Lake on a weekday, you'll find it really tranquil. It's normally busiest on Sundays. St. Albans is a safe place, but with quite a good night life. It all ends quite early, apart from the Adelaide and Batchwood, or the Horn. But overall, with it's balance between its beautiful scenery, safeness and it's fun and entertainment, it's a good all round place to live.
  • The young men
  • Me and H&H chiken and Kebabs
  • The people. The Fighting Cocks cats, especially Leroy tha lazy gangstah and Archie the psychotic bastard cat.
  • The big concrete square in the park. It's fun for making big pagan phallic torches, which you then dance about shouting about the "Immense Man Penis" very loud, and hoping some tramp will give you head.
  • Nothing ever changes - you can return at feel at home again
  • More pubs per head of population than any other city in Europe!!!
  • satelite tv
  • My Friends live here and Verulam school is a sanctuary for the strange and non-conformists
  • proximity to london
  • pubs, lots of pubs. image(the other local towns suck so much), a known, joked about, snobery. - ohh so you come from St albans do you? hawdy haw.
  • Very close to London. Not Hatfield.
