Of all the great places to live in Hertfordshire, St Albans isn't the biggest, but it's our only city.

It's a very historic city, too. The story of Alban himself (and how his head ended up in a well at the bottom of Holywell Hill) is interesting, but for centuries there's been a market and, of course, the Abbey.

The Abbey stood in for Westminster Abbey in Rowan Atkinson's Johnny English and a number of other films and TV shows have used the beautiful streets and historic buildings as locations.

Theatres and music venues abound, possibly because of the proximity to London and there's even two museums and several eminent local sports clubs.

St Albans School is probably most famous as educator of physicist Stephen Hawking and lyricist Tim Rice.

St Albans Mayor is Councillor Salih Gaygusuz and there's a strong sense of community around the city.

More than 8,000 businesses are part of St Albans District, including lots of small businesses and big names like PwC, Deloitte and Premier Foods. St Albans Enterprise Agency aims to help people start, grow and develop successful businesses.

At #HertsHour, we have a huge number of regular contributors from St Albans, so it's obviously a great place to do business!
