Hotels in Welwyn Garden City
Set in a picturesque garden city and within easy reach of shopping centres, historic sites and grand country homes, Welwyn Garden City Hotels are a great place to stay in the heart of Hertfordshire.
Sir Ebenezer Howard founded the town in the 1920's to exemplify his urban planning ethos of combining the benefits of country and city life. As such, the town features a range of neo-Georgian buildings and plenty of green spaces. One of the most impressive historical attractions in the nearby area is the Welwyn Roman Baths. This site offers a fascinating glimpse into Roman-British life and, although the baths themselves no longer function, the ancient remains are a great way to learn about Roman heating systems.
Also close to Welwyn Garden City is the Mill Green Mill and Museum, a working watermill that dates from the 18th century. Set on a beautiful spot along the riverside, the grounds of the mill are perfect for afternoon picnics or gentle strolls and the museum itself features a range of exhibitions on the historical and technological background of the mill. The mill also has a shop and a café serving delicious cream teas.
The grand Hatfield House is a very popular attraction in the local area. This Jacobean house and gardens were built in 1611 by Robert Cecil, First Earl of Salisbury and Chief Minister to King James I and stand on the site of an earlier home, the Royal Palace of Hatfield, built in 1497 and the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth I. The house itself is a very interesting place to explore and you could easily spend the day learning about the building's rich heritage. The grounds are equally impressive, covering 42 acres and a perfect location for sunny days during the spring and summer.
A short drive north from Welwyn Garden City is Knebworth, where you'll find Knebworth House, a large Gothic mansion dating from the 15th century and frequently home to large open-air rock concerts. West of Welwyn is Shaw's Corner, home to George Bernard Shaw for over 40 years and a must-see if you're interested in the life of the famous playwright. Head east from Welwyn Garden City and you'll reach the Lea Valley, a great location for outdoor treks with the family. Head south and you'll soon reach the northern outskirts of London.
