About the area

Flower and bushes with houses in the background

Welwyn Hatfield is a unique and wonderful area. It embraces an exciting future while retaining a rich heritage and history.

Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield and the surrounding areas offer a rich mix of culture, nature and leisure. Add to this, great schools and housing and you really do have everything you could want.

The regeneration that has taken place, and continues to take place, across the borough has brought new energy and character.

Despite being in such easy reach of London, you’ll find it easy to escape into nature with woodland walks and nature reserves practically on your doorstep.

Both Welwyn and Hatfield town centres also offer a wide selection of places to shop, eat and drink.

Education is a top priority in the borough. We not only have a number of great schools but also the highly regarded University of Hertfordshire and the Royal Veterinary College which is one of the leading veterinary colleges in the country.

You will also find a fantastic range of housing, whether in or around the town centres or the stunning villages throughout the borough.
