Welwyn Garden City Society

Ebenezer Howard’s vision of a Garden City was one that would combine the benefits of living in a town with those of living in the country. It would be a place in which people would both live and work in beautiful surroundings; in a city that would not only be a ‘city in a garden’ but also a ‘city of gardens’ and an example of good civic design and architectural harmony.

The Welwyn Garden City Society exists to defend these ideals on which the town was built.

  • I lived in Welwyn garden City (Mill Green, Little Gannet, Ethelred Close) in the early 60’s to 1976. Best time of my life & would be back there now if I could afford the house prices! Many of my family still live there & I visit as often as I can.
