As a place to live and work the borough of Welwyn Hatfield has much to offer. It is a prosperous community with a high standard of living, low unemployment and offers a good quality of life.
It has excellent road and rail links to London, international airports and the rest of the UK. With its mixture of thriving medieval and modern towns and sleepy picturesque villages, it offers something for everyone - from historic attractions dating back to Roman times to museums, theatre and arts and excellent leisure facilities.
The Borough is well served by public transport links. Both Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield have railway stations that run fast and frequent trains going south into London Kings Cross and Moorgate stations with connections to London Underground at Finsbury Park along the route.

Going north, the trains connect to other main towns such as Stevenage and Hitchin going towards Peterborough. This line also branches off towards Letchworth and Cambridge.
Bus services also link up our two main towns of the Borough and this area of Hertfordshire has over 40 bus routes which cover other main towns such as Stevenage, Hertford, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.
The major road routes serving the Borough are the A1(M) and the M25 close by, allowing easy access to Greater London, the North and other parts of the country.
