At the heart of the new museum, permanent exhibition, The City that went Uphill, charts the development of the District from pre-Roman era settlement to the modern bustling city it is today.

This fascinating story starts as far back as 110,000 BC – when hunter-gatherers first arrived in Britain – and reveals St Albans’ role in many of the transformative events of British history.

Here in the Grand Staircase Gallery learn more about Boudicca's major uprisings against the ruling Romans at Colchester, London and Verulamium. Then discover what impact the Battle of St Albans had on the War of the Roses and see how these events created the city as we know it today.
