WHAT THE OWNERS SAY-Having originally come from North London, Welwyn is a lovely, serene place to live. I have found it really easy to commute into London, with only a 25-minute train journey, and my wife loves her “commute” through Welwyn into work, where she enjoys horse, sheep and rabbit-spotting. We are lucky to have a short 20-minute walk into town, which we often do, and we are also only five minutes away from a corner shop, take-aways and a pharmacy, lovely fields (for picnics) and woods to explore. The community is friendly and welcoming and has really come together during these difficult times. The fact that our flat benefits from a quiet communal garden has allowed us more freedom during lockdown, where we have had BBQs, sunbathed, and just enjoyed the outdoors. We love AL8 so much now that we are looking to stay in the area for many years to come. -
ABOUT THE WEST SIDE-Welwyn Garden City was founded by Sir Ebenezer Howard in the 1920s and designated a new town in 1948. It was aimed to combine the benefits of the city and countryside.
Surrounded by rolling Hertfordshire countryside, Welwyn Garden City was an escape from life in overcrowded cities to a place of sunshine, leafy lanes, countryside and cafes. Emphasis was placed on the Garden City's healthy environment.
Today it’s a busy and bustling town with a selection of shops, the Howard Shopping Centre is located in the centre of Welwyn Garden City where you can find a selection of high street favourites including John Lewis and Marks & Spencer there is also a Waitrose and a Sainsbury’s in the town. Welwyn Garden also has its own quaint cinema in the town centre, showing the latest films. -
Continued-For everyday needs, if you fancy a spot of lunch the town is home to a plethora of coffee shops, independent restaurants and well-known chains. The Don is considered the best Indian restaurant in Welwyn, which is a popular option to consider for a quality, authentic meal. For those who like to lead an active lifestyle, there is everything from football pitches, golf driving ranges, indoor and outdoor tennis, to an athletics track, a public velodrome and a dry ski slope.
