Shaw’s Corner opens again! Sat 24 March

Put the flags out! The marvellous Ayot St Lawrence National Trust property and former arts and crafts home to playwright George Bernard Shaw opens for the season on Saturday. And of course the gardens might not look quite like this yet, but they will. George Bernard Shaw’s wife Charlotte was a suffragist and both of them championed the suffrage movement which makes it all the more important to visit the house this year.

The best view in town! Climb to the top of the Norman Bell Tower in St Albans Cathedral via the north transept gallery, and come out on the roof of the tower. You need to book because this is very popular! £9.50
