About Welwyn Garden City
Welwyn Garden City, also known locally as "WGC" or "Welwyn Garden", is a town within the Borough of Welwyn Hatfield in Hertfordshire, England. It is located approximately 19 miles (31 km) from Kings Cross. Welwyn Garden City was the second garden city in England (founded 1920) and one of the first new towns (designated 1948).
It is unique in being both a garden city and a new town and exemplifies the physical, social and cultural planning ideals of the periods in which it was built.The town is laid out along tree-lined boulevards in a neo-Georgian style. Every road has a wide grass verge.
The town offers excellent modern shopping, comprising mainly of the modern Howard Centre indoor shopping centre, a large John Lewis department store a few hundred metres away from the Howard Centre.
Our Welwyn Garden City Charity Shop is located directly opposite the renowned John Lewis department store. With parking available at the front and access to the rear of the store, we appreciate your custom and support.
