Fonthill House Activities

Luxury Care Home St Albans, Hertfordshire

The Fonthill Difference

A trip to the London Eye, tea at the Ritz and Henley boat trips with champagne and strawberries on board — Fonthill House is no ordinary care home. High profile visiting speakers, yoga and art classes are all just part of our full weekly programme of events.

A lifestyle to suit you and other like minded residents at Fonthill House. Our regular residents meetings create a forum for ideas deciding our next destination so our team can make them happen. We believe in always having something to look forward to.
