A SHORT TRIP TO STEVENAGE BY TRAIN
The attractive market town of Stevenage is just over 20 minutes away from the capital, and with a mix of history, architecture and arts, a trip to Stevenage will keep you occupied. Located in Hertfordshire, Stevenage is known for being the UK’s first “new town” which was designed to home displaced Londoners after the Second World War. Stevenage became an attractive destination with its quick and easy connections and transport links to London.
Notable individuals, Charles Dickens and Edward Bulwer Lytton, founded the Guild of Literature and Arts on London Road during the 19th Century. Novelist E.M. Forster also lived at Rooks Nest near St Nicholas Church. Take a wander into Old Town for an example of the quirky old streets and buildings. Why not visit Grade II listed Knebworth House, a stately Tudor home.
