The Camp


This residential area has a welcoming, community feel and its position to the east of the city, within easy reach of St Albans City Station, makes it a popular choice with families and commuters alike.

Cafes, shops, bars and restaurants

The Smokehouse Deli serves up delicious deli sandwiches and sweet treats as well as Italian coffee. The Camp Fish and Chips shop is locally famed for its outstanding fish and chips, as well as recently featuring in a Gucci advert with Harry Styles. It’s also just a short walk away from Hatfield Road’s wide range of shops, salons, cafes and takeaways.


The area is served by several good primary schools, including The Camp Primary School, Cunningham Hill Infants and Juniors Schools and Samuel Ryder Primary and Secondary school.

Parks and green spaces

The Camp has its own play area and allotments, as well as being close to Fleetville Park and Highfield Park.
