Travelling around Welwyn Garden City

Travelling around Welwyn Garden City

Pretty Georgian-style cottages, wide tree-lined boulevards and a bustling town centre give Welwyn Garden City its distinctive ambience. Built in the 1920s to house the overspill from London, WGC is a pretty, well-connected commuter town with a heart.

If you’re coming to Welwyn Garden City, then there’s plenty to see and do, whatever your interests. Adrenaline junkies can pay a visit to the Rollercity and the dry ski slopes while those in the mood for something a little more sedate can check out its numerous parks and soothing Roman baths.

As you’d expect from a commuter town, Welwyn Garden City is remarkably well-connected. The M1 runs by and it’s only 15 minutes from the M25. There are regular trains into London (three an hour) and trains to Peterborough too. Arriva buses operate services to Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage, St Albans and beyond.

At the heart of the town centre is the Howard Centre. This bustling mall has plenty of High Street stores, such as Topshop, Monsoon and Next, as well as cafés, hairdressers and fitness centres – perfect for all of your shopping needs.

If you’re in the mood for something a little more tranquil, then Stanborough Park is sure to impress. With two huge lakes, plenty of flora and fauna and even a little café, this place is a great place to spend a sunny day.
