The city dates back to the Iron Age and in Roman Britain was the second largest city after Londinium. The city has a number of important historic sites and buildings including St Albans Abbey and the Roman remains of Verulamium. The site lies to the west of Sopwell House, an historic white stucco Georgian country house, now a luxury 128 bedroom hotel, country club & spa.
The building itself is located in the St Julians area of St Albans, in the post-war built Cottonmill Estate. Eywood House has been redeveloped on the site of an old 1970’s sheltered housing scheme called Betty Entwistle House on Holyrood Crescent.
A bus stop is located right outside the building which takes you into St Albans city, stopping at various points along the way providing easy access to the local area. By road, St Albans is less than a 2 mile drive into the centre.
St Albans City train station is around a 7 minute drive from Eywood House which provides services into London and north to Luton Airport Parkway, Luton and Bedford.
