Markets are held in the main street on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The football team is St. Albans City F.C., their 'stadium' is Clarence Park, they play in the Ryman's Premier League.
Housing is expensive relative to England in general, possibly due to fast commuting to London by train or maybe the large number of pubs. CAMRA have an office in Hatfield Road and hold an annual beer festival.
