Welwyn Garden City is unique that it is classified as both a garden city and also a new town. It was founded as a garden city in 1920 and qualified as a new town in 1948. Being a garden city, it is characterised by tree-lined roads, parkland and large amounts of green space alongside roads. It has been mindfully-planned to best marry rural beauty with urban requirements.
The office space at Shire Park, which is just 200 metres outside of the town centre, is located within an impressive, modern glass-clad building. Private offices can be rented here in a variety of sizes and on bespoke terms. The rent includes rates, insurance, electricity, furnishings and so on, so minimal outlay is required when taking occupation.
Tesco Plc has chosen Shire Park as its headquarters, and HSBC’s global data centre is also based in the town, to name a few high-profile occupiers, so clients at this office are within a vibrant business community.
There is ample car parking at Shire Park, and the A1(M) is half a kilometre from the park. Welwyn Garden City train station is a 12-minute bus ride or a 25-minute stroll. Train journeys to central London take 25 minutes, and the service runs every 10 minutes. Heathrow is just over 40 minutes by car.
