Bentley Priory Museum

Bentley Priory Museum tells the fascinating story of the beautiful Grade II* listed country house, focusing on its role as Headquarters Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. Before your tour, you will have the opportunity to buy a coffee in the beautiful café, overlooking the Italian Gardens.
Explore the important stories of ‘The One’ – Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding, ‘The Few’ who took to the air to defend our skies and ‘The Many’ without whose tireless work on the ground, victory would not have been possible and discover how technology, leadership and courage forged victory, allowing Britain’s darkest hour to also be her finest hour.

Lunch

Enjoy a soup & sandwich buffet lunch with tea, coffee and cake at Bentley Priory before heading over to St Albans Cathedral.

St Albans Cathedral

This is the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain and stands over the place where Alban, Britain’s first saint, was buried after giving his life for his faith over 1700 years ago. Down the centuries, countless pilgrims have come to honour the saint’s sacrifice and offer their prayers at his shrine. And they still come in their thousands today.
Highlights include the longest nave in England, the Rose Window and the Watching Loft. There are so many themes to explore at the Cathedral. Expert guides can provide a general tour or tailor content to suit your group’s interests. Choose from flowers, textiles or the history of pilgrimage.
