You could walk around Verulamium Park for hours if you wanted to. Lovely lake, and a small museum on the hill showing archaeological diggings of beautiful stonework and tiles on the floor of a Roman house.

Beautiful place for a stroll or picnic. Visited the park to see the Roman ruins. The museum is on the property and you can also walk the Abbey.

I brought my dog over here recently and it's a great place for her. The stream provides endless fun and games, while the playing fields offer plenty of space for running around. It's wide and open, and a fair distance from the road so I felt very safe. Elsewhere in the park there's the pond/reservoir and an outdoor gym and... More

On the site of a Roman settlement the park has lots of Roman ruins and old wall and superb example of a Roman hypocaust. There is an excellent cafe and the museum is only a short walk from the car park. The lake is home to lots of wildfowl and Herons nest on the island in the middle of the... More

I love this park its great for little ones to ride their bikes round the lake, shoot some basket ball hoops or go the the cafe in the centre. Lovely place to have a family picnic and meet up with friends. Large enough for rounders and football with access to Westminster lodge.

The park is simply lovely - with lots to do for all age groups. highly recommended. The only thing that could be improved is the lake - please get rid of the awful concrete edging and improve the water quality by planting reeds and other aquatic plants - the stagnant water is rather offputting.

Wonderful place to wander around on a sunny day. Swans and ducks on the lake, an ice cream van nearby. Walk your dog, take a picnic. Best thing about it is the proximity to Ye Olde Fighting Cocks - without doubt the best pub I've ever been to.

Ducks and swans are delightful but there's so much more inside. Roman ruins, swings, basketball and tennis courts, even a climbing wall! Perfect place to spend a summer afternoon.
