Your guide

Welwyn town

Just 20 miles north of London, Welwyn combines a busy, modern town centre with scenic green spaces, woodland walks, and cosy country pubs in easy reach.

Founded in 1920, by Sir Ebenezer Howard, Welwyn became England’s second Garden City – designed to combine the benefits of the city and the countryside, with an emphasis on healthy living.

A century later, Welwyn has grown to a population of c.60,000 and is a very desirable place to live. It offers a rental market that spans both characterful homes in Old Welwyn and an excellent choice of modern, low maintenance new builds.

Good local schools, including ‘outstanding’ primary schools, and great access to outdoor living make Welwyn particularly appealing for families. The beautifully landscaped grounds of Stanborough Park offer tranquil lake and nature walks, as well as  water sports for more active renters.

 Fitness fans are spoilt for choice in Welwyn, with everything from roller skating and tennis, to ski-ing and athletics available – there’s even an Olympic-style velodrome!

With average property prices continuing to follow an upward trend, rising % in the past year, we think Welwyn will continue to be a leading investment spot – it’s a great place, with plenty of renter appeal.
