Life in St Albans

Hi all, we are thinking of moving to St Albans, although still considering around Amersham. Could any of you share your experiences of living in St Albans please? Particularly with regards to state primary schools and nurseries. We have a 4 months old baby girl, so planning ahead. We live in Hendon currently, but want to move somewhere a bit quieter. Which nurseries and schools you particularly like in there? Also, which areas are nice to live and which are better to be avoided? Thanks a ton!

All the St Albans schools are well thought of but some are very difficult to get into so you need to think about location in terms of a house and a school. It is a busy place and traffic can be an issue at times but it is very popular with families and there is a lot going on. You might get more replies if you posted on the Hertfordshire board.

It's location is key in st alb for schools
Beaumont is sought after as secondary. Many good primary's too. You have to live very close to some and that pushes prices up

Traffic is horrendous at all times.

Shops r reasonable but not as good as they used to be.

Nice park and restaurants.
