Mini guide to Welwyn Garden City

     

Located north of London between Hatfield and Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City is a fine example of a modern post WWI town. Today, Welwyn is a thriving business centre which attracts tourists with its excellent shopping, entertainment and leisure opportunities and outlying attractions.

The brainchild of the Welwyn Garden City concept was Sir Ebenezer Howard who dreamt up the plan of taking people out of the centre of London where living conditions were getting more and more crowded. To do this he established the satellite town of Welwyn Garden City, with its own facilities and dependency.

The shopping facilities in Welwyn Garden City are superb, with the likes of John Lewis department store and the indoor Howard Shopping Centre. The town is also blessed with excellent leisure facilities, the crux of which is Stanborough Park, with its boating lake and open air swimming pool.

Additional leisure facilities include the Gosling Sports Park, where cycling and athletics are widely enjoyed, while the Campus West entertainment centre has a roller skating rink and a theatre. Welwyn also has a municipal golf course, driving range and an artificial ski slope and cafés, restaurants, bars and pubs are abundant.

Not far from Welwyn Garden City are the Welwyn Roman Baths, with their various bathing rooms and under floor heating. Nearby Hatfield is known for the magnificent Hatfield House, shopping, aviation and its Saxon connection, while the delights of Oxford, Cambridge and London are close at hand.

Welwyn Garden City is just east of the A1(M) motorway and there are three direct trains per hour from Kings Cross and Moorgate stations in London as well as a service every hour from Birmingham International Airport. National Express coaches regularly run services to Welwyn from Birmingham International Airport via Heathrow, while Luton International Airport is the nearest air terminal, with Stansted and Heathrow also within easy reach.
