Moving to Ware
Ware is an old market town that has yet to be fully discovered by those wanting to live outside but work inside London. It still preserves that untouched feeling with beautiful landscapes with an incredible sense of community.
If that doesn’t sound like heaven, Ware was also voted as one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live in England!
Activities for the entire family
The Van Hage Garden Centre, near to Ware, contains everything you could ever want for a family day out. There’s a farmers market on the first Thursday of every month selling a variety of fresh fruit, veg, cheese and meat.
A food hall and a cacophony of home and (of course) garden supplies aren’t all the centre have to offer.
The East Herts Miniature Railway open every weekend and run by volunteers and enthusiasts. Ventura’s Wildlife Zoological Gardens, split into two sections: Adventure Island and Sidly’s Wildlands with lemurs, pythons, zebras, emus and more exotic creatures from around the world.
The Baobab Jungle sells ethically produced, fairly traded goods from some of the poorest parts of the world with items such as candles, Komodo dragons, and djembe drums.
The History of Ware Museum was established in 1986 in a Grade I listed building that dates back to the 14th Century. Visitors and residents can explore their WW2 bunker or stroll through the hidden herb garden.
With eateries like Saracens Head overlooking the River Lea and the Place House Hall (in another Grade I listed building), there is no shortage of varied places to visit.
Community spirit in Ware
If you’re looking to move to a place with an incredible community spirit, then Ware is most definitely the place for you! Events like the Dickensian Evening, Heritage Weekend and the Ware Festival are all staples of the area.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a sport that Ware facilities don’t cater to, including fishing along the River Lea!
House Prices and Commuting
In the last year alone the house prices in Ware have risen by 7%. Despite this, overall house prices in Ware were cheaper than Hertford Heath and Great Amwell.
Along with the fact that it’s less than 50 minutes to Liverpool Street Station and that it’s one of the best places to live, we think you’ve just found your new home!
