Welwyn Garden City was one of the first planned towns in the country. Developed by Ebenezer Howard in the 1920s, it was designed specifically to be an urbanised town in a rural setting. This attractive blend makes it a popular choice for commuters to nearby London whilst providing easy access to the surrounding attractions. Restaurants in Welwyn Garden City reflect this blend of urban and rural, too, with many creating a relaxed but stylish atmosphere ideal for enjoying fine food.
