Travel Tips for Welwyn Garden City

World's second garden city

by Willettsworld

I thought it about time that I write a little, and there is only a little, on my home town of Welwyn Garden City, also referred to as WGC or just Welwyn, as it's also incorrectly known, as there's a small village of Welwyn nearby. To confuse matters even more, Welwyn Garden City isn't a city but in fact a town with a population of around 43,000. It's located about 20 miles north of London, just off the A1(M) motorway.

The town became the world's second garden city in the 1920's after being founded by Sir Ebenezer Howard following his previous experiment in Letchworh Garden City, located about 15 miles to the north. However, it's by no means a tourist attraction! Yes, there are some nice areas such as those in and around the town centre along what is known as Parkway - a mile long central mall or 'scenic parkway'. Apart from that, the town's only other distinctive features are of a former Shredded Wheat Factory, which is a fine example of art deco industrial design but is now redundant, and a couple of nice lakes with varied flora and fauna called Stanborough Park in the south of the town. The main reason to come here is to either work or shop as there's a reasonable shopping centre and a large John Lewis department store.

Home Sweet Home

"If you lived here, you'd want to travel"

Here is my home town, Welwyn Garden City.

Its about 25 north from the centre of London in Hertfordshire

It has all the glamour and excitement of the West End of London - not

For excitement, you can visit the library or the rollerskating rink.

There are a couple of pubs and the odd Pizza restaurant

It has a fountain which sometimes people fill with soap powder for a bit of entertainment

"More exciting things about Welwyn Garden City"

We have a lovely shopping centre called the Howard Centre with many shops.

There is a sports centre and a dry ski slope

There is a cereal factory that makes the town smell like weetabix.

Are you excited yet?

"Nearby Lovely places"

We are only a few minutes drive to lovely places such as Hertford, St Albans, Hatfield House and the Hatfield Galleria shopping emporium.

Famous people from Welwyn Garden City - Lisa Snowdon who is dating George Clooney. One of the members of the pop group Mystique. Great.
