Welwyn Garden City Guide
The new town of Welwyn, Welwyn Garden City, was developed in the 1920’s following a method of urban planning thought up by Sir Ebenezer Howard in 1898. The idea was to create self-sufficient cities, consisting of dedicated areas of residence, industry and agriculture surrounded by a green belt which would provide better air quality and an ideal leisure area.
Indeed, residents of Welwyn Garden City can enjoy the sanctuary of greenery to practise many different sports, for a family walk or even to go camping. The city caters for many sports including skiing, golf, badminton, squash, tennis, fitness… and even features a velodrome where cyclists of all levels can train and raise their performance and a spa for well-deserved relaxation.

Interestingly, the city has chosen to enforce the original Ebenezer Howard decree by only allowing three licensed pubs within its perimeter. However, many facilities are dedicated to retail and entertainment, such as the Howard Centre, the shopping centre where you will find countless stores organised over two floors.
Campus West is where you will find a cinema, conference rooms and a roller skating rink, and Stanborough Park provides a beautiful wildlife sanctuary thanks to its man-made lakes.
If you have children, you will have plenty of schools to choose from with three state secondary schools and the Sherrardswood private school, which is particularly renowned.
Welwyn Garden City is a great place to move to if you are always looking for things to do. Festivals, charity events, tournaments and other fun activities are often organised by the Council for people of all ages, and there is always something interesting going on.
If it started out as a mostly industrial town, Welwyn Garden City is now the home of several large companies, many of which belong to the food industry. Among them, Baxters, Xerox, Roche or Tesco offer many job opportunities. But it’s the town’s proximity to London that particularly attracts commuters looking for a place away from the big city, which allows them to commute on a daily basis. Thanks to its many buses and the presence of a railway station, placing London only 20 minutes away for the town centre, Welwyn Garden City is the ideal commuter town. Even car owners are accommodated as it is served by several major roads, including the A1 and the A414.
Moving to Welwyn Garden City is a great choice for young people looking to start a family. Being so close to the capital and in a lovely green area perfect for raising children at the same time offers a compromise-free lifestyle which continues to attract more and more people each year.
