Welwyn Garden City was founded by Sir Ebenezer Howard in the 1920s as the second Garden City after Letchworth. Garden Cities aimed to combine the benefits of the city and the countryside and to avoid the disadvantages of both.

Welwyn Garden was designated a new town in 1948, when the Welwyn Garden City company handed its assets to the Welwyn Garden City Development Corporation.

With only a 30-minute commute from London, Welwyn Garden City is ideally located with easy and accessible transporting means.

HitchinTV, a team who has dedicated themselves to create a range of creative and innovative high-quality videos, has prepared a hyperlapse video of our much-loved Welwyn Garden City.
