Welcome to The Lower Red Lion
Here since the 17th Century
Located in the conservation area between the city centre and the site of Roman Verulamium, the pub stands in one of St Albans’ most picturesque streets. Although it was located on a key coaching route, the Lower Red Lion itself was not a major coaching inn or post-house. We can tell this from the architecture – the height of the yard arch would not accommodate a full coach – and from the absence of any noteworthy guests (though Queen Victoria herself took tea at a nearby hostelry).
