  • Lots of nice buildings in the town. Especially if you like history. Shame they let the cinema go to ruin, but I guess the usless council dont want to spend money on it when they can spend it on waste of time roadworks!
  • Probably the town hall, although it could do with a paint. Maybe having a white building in the middle of the polluted town centre wasn't such a good idea.
  • The giant blue 1 next to statipn give trippey reflectins
  • Kishmojin.
  • My house, Of course. has all my shit in it.
  • I like the chip shops...and stanhope road
  • the c'ock tower where the bellends from year 10 and 11 meet up with there buddies to walk around town looking 'ard!
  • My house, without it i would be very cold.
  • my house...oh ok...St Albans Abbey from the A5
  • Michaels house on Spencer Gate where the dog performs tricks and the living rooms one big wrestling arena. if you ask really nicely and give him beer you may even get a collage (of schubert)
  • The Bus Garage.
  • the one made of bricks
  • the pioneer is the greatest building ever it even has a caravan inside it which mysteriously got vandalised.........
  • The old dairy building in St Michaels
  • The car park roof behind marks and spencers- top floor!
  • The Big Concrete Square in Verulamium Park, if that counts as a building. My childminder told me that it's used for Bear Baiting. They put a bear in the middle, and then throw dogs at it...
  • the easy b'n'b!
  • The main Post Office.
  • the concrete square in the park
  • The Cathedral at night all lit up is pretty impressive.
  • Ye Olde Fighting Cocks.. the cocks that fight bring me pleausre all week long.
  • Verulam School, home of the biggest psycho collective since Fido and his friends wore flight suits and broke into an old mental hospital. They discovered a whole stack of gimps all stacked up in a big heap with ball-masks on. Fido unzipped their leather clothing, and introduced himself to them. But he had to leave in a hurry because Martin J Ling wanted to play Vampire and Magic. One of the gimps had floppy hair, and liked to be known as Nicky P. Nihal and Guy got really cross when they discovered Nicky P was a gimp, as it really interfered with their street cred. When they left Nicky P to be gimped, they went back to Nihal's house, but their embarrasment was only to become greater, for Nihal's brother was holding one of his infamous 'Jacking Contests', and Shaihan, Frank, Peter, Warren and Ky were jacking off in Nihal's house. Nihal and Guy went to the snooker club instead.
  • la centre pompedu
  • the sick building
  • The Horn
  • The wall outside the Horn is an amazing work of art. You can have so much fun balancing on it when you've been on the pints.
  • Hmm... Fighting Cocks, The White Hart, The Tudor Tavern, The Boot, The Fleur-de-Lys, The clock tower, the station box, the Abbey (duh!)...
  • The bearded institution they call bakewells hatfielrd
  • As has been said above, the roof of verulam school is amazing. It's like a whole new world. Many a midnight picnic I've had up there, or a quick f**k. Crap alarm which goes off when the wind blows, but not when gangs of rebellious teenagers smash the place in. Isn't it ironic....
  • Verulam School - aaaah Nostalgia throwback. Still run by Bob who is controlled by Big Ron
  • The old railway signal box that you go past around 100m from St Albans station south bound. It needs some new paint though. Its very cute
  • the maltings
  • er,.. the Maltings ?!? if you go in it its a shoping center, if you look at it from above it looks like a posh block of flats, cortyards and all .
  • The Clock Tower
  • Pioneer of course
