There are many reasons why you might want to come to Stevenage to live. Good leisure and shopping facilities, affordable house prices, a quick commute to London (25 minutes by fast train), as well green open spaces to enjoy. It's a town with two faces. Stevenage is split into two distinct areas - 'Old Town' and 'New Town'. The smaller Old Town, has an attractive high street lined with small shops and historic pubs. In contrast, New Town looks and feels more urban and lined with modern housing.
A particularly attractive feature in the town is the network of separated bicycle paths that cross the whole area, enabling you to cycle practically anywhere in the town, without having to negotiate traffic. Stevenage has the first pedestrianised shopping precinct in the UK, which on the whole remains vibrant and successful, unlike those in many other new towns. What's not love?
