St.Albans Clock Tower was erected at the beginning of the 15th.Century. It was built to sound the curfew for the citizens of St.Albans to be in their homes by a certain time in the evening.
During the Wars of the Roses in the second half of the 15th.Century, two battles were fought in and around St.Albans. The First was fought around the Clock Tower and up St.Peters Street the main thoroughfare through the city, and the second was fought to the North East of the city around Sandridge Road and Bernard’s Heath.

It's nice to see, but it is not the reason you should go to St Albans. You can see it since you are there, already, to see the wonderful Roman remains and the cathedral.

It was built between 1403 and 1412 and the only medieval belfry in the country. If open you can climb 93 steps for the views.

its cool getting to the top of the building and looking right off the top, you can see EVERYWHERE. When you get to the top you start to realise that the world is actually pretty small, it's like living in a dreamworld where you are a giant godzilla person walking around st. albans city and stomping on all the stuff, so dench, would 100% come here again!
