About Welwyn Garden City

The Garden City has a vibrant retail shopping environment and you will find Ashtons directly opposite the renowned John Lewis department store.

Welwyn Garden City was founded by Sir Ebenezer Howard in the 1920s following his previous experiment in Letchworth Garden City. Howard had called for the creation of planned towns that were to combine the benefits of the city and the countryside but to avoid the disadvantages of both.

The town is laid out along tree-lined boulevards in a neo-Georgian style. Every road has a wide grass verge. The spine of the town is Parkway, a central mall or scenic parkway, almost a mile long.

The original planners intended that all the residents of the Garden City would shop in one shop and created the Welwyn Stores taken over by the John Lewis Partnership in 1984. A now bustling shopping mall, the Howard Centre, was built in the 1980s, incorporating the original railway station.

Leisure facilities form an important part of Welwyn Garden City including the splendid Gosling Sports Centre which has a dry ski slope, golf driving range, indoor and outdoor tennis, squash, football pitches, an athletics track, a gym and bowls. There are two golf courses: Panshanger, owned and operated by the borough council, and the Welwyn Garden City Golf Club, of which Nick Faldo was once a member. Stanborough Park and lakes also feature highly in the life of local residents.

Welwyn Garden City housing caters for all markets. The 'West Side' as it's known locally offers numerous tree lined roads of heavily influenced Georgian architecture ranging from two bedroom mews housing to large imposing family homes with grand facade. To the east of the town centre are healthy stocks of three bedroom first time buyer and family homes with open green spaces and parks close by. All areas have excellent access to rail service.

Post Second World War Welwyn Garden City grew considerably in size with new developments which are now firmly established in the Knightsfield area just to the north of the West Side and Panshanger on the Hertford side of the town.

The outlying villages of Digswell, Tewin and Datchworth offer some of the finest housing stock in the county with miles of greenbelt countryside surrounding yet all are within easy access of Welwyn North mainline rail station (fast trains serving Kings Cross in approximately 20 minutes).

Welwyn Village offers all types of property ranging from period homes to high specification modern mews developments with traditional elevations in keeping with the village's historic background. The village captures what many people look for: a lovely high street with a broad mix of shops and restaurants, a river running through the middle of the village and a fine Norman church overlooking the village centre.

Just outside of Welwyn sits Codicote village and the more rural areas of Potters Heath leading to Knebworth Village, itself offering similar facilities to Welwyn and importantly having its own mainline rail station serving both Kings Cross and Cambridge.
