Welwyn Garden City: one of England's first garden cities

Founded in 1920, Welwyn Garden City is a town in the country of Hertfordshire, England. It is advantageously located directly north of Greater London, approximately 32km from King’s Cross, London.

It is one of the original garden cities – the garden city movement is an urban planning method in which green belts are proportionally integrated with residences, industry and agriculture.

A London Commuter Town

Even before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, every day there are hundreds of thousands of people who commute to London for work. In fact, people in Great Britain take 29 minutes on average across all modes of travel to get from home to their workplace (according to the Transport Statistics Great Britain 2019).

Welwyn Garden City is a viable affordable alternative to living in London. The average property price in Welwyn Garden City of GBP395,381 is 19% lower than the London average of GBP488,003.

The covid-19 pandemic has created an even greater potential for people to reconsider city living, and to opt to live and work in less populated suburban areas, like Welwyn Garden City. This sentiment is reflected from the 1.2% rise in rental prices for properties in the commuter belts located in the south of England, which encompasses Welwyn Garden City, the highest growth in over 5 years (according to the Savills prime lettings index in October 2020).

Covid-19 is reshaping the way we work, normalizing work from home practices. In a post-pandemic world, it is foreseeable that more part-time, full-time or flexible remote working practices will be implemented. The new normal has triggered people to rethink what they value the most in a home, such as quality of living, work life balance and leisure space.
