Welwyn is not just Welwyn Garden City! The original village of Welwyn, also called Old Welwyn, is a great place to be in its own right. As were several towns in Hertfordshire, it used to be a Roman settlement, and still bears traces of their presence. The ruins of the Roman Baths are a must-see in the area.
If you are moving to Welwyn as a family, you will be happy to know that the village has two primary state schools, as well as an all-ages independent school. For secondary schools, children will need to go to Welwyn Garden City or Stanborough.
The village has kept unspoiled its original charm and a walk through its streets will bring you back to its coaching heydays, back when it used to be an important staging post. Stroll through High Street and Church Street, and you will discover an array of shops, pubs and other amenities which make for a busy, welcoming and lively village.
The small town also offers a few restaurants, including a lovely new Italian place, where you could enjoy pasta or a pizza, cake and a coffee for £9.90. Aqua is another Italian restaurant which always wins the public’s support, and the Wellington and the White Horse offer more traditional British cuisine, in a typically rustic atmosphere.
For an interesting and original Sunday activity, why not book a cooking class at the Welwyn Cooking Academy? At this workshop, you will learn to cook all manners of dishes and desserts with a friendly professional chef, Dennis Van Golberdinge, all in lovely atmosphere.
More affordable than St Albans, great for your daily commute, safe and pleasant, Welwyn is the perfect place if you are looking to relocate with your family. And for sports, you can either enjoy the great outdoors, perfect for a run or a football match among friends, or join one of the many sport centres in the area, in Welwyn Garden City or in Hatfield. Children and adults alike will love these leisure centres which offer a great selection of sports, including team sports, tennis, golf, swimming, martial arts, dance, fitness and so much more.
The only thing left to do is to find a place and prepare your house move! Welwyn has great real estate opportunities to offer, whether you are looking for a small apartment in the historical centre of the village or a grand family house set on a beautiful plot.
