All you need to know about Ware

Ware is a town in Hertfordshire, England. It overlooks the River Lea and forms part of the East Hertfordshire district. It has a population of over 18,000 and at just 45 minutes outside of London, Ware is an ideal destination for business travel and offers a variety of serviced apartments.

There is evidence of settlement in Ware as early as the Mesolithic Period. The Romans are said to have occupied the town and established various buildings there including two cemeteries and a temple. The name “Ware” first came into usage in the Anglo Saxon Period, as a reference to the numerous weirs which were built there to protect against the Vikings.

In the 17th century, Ware became the main hub for a new river, which provided an important water source for London. As the town has grown, it’s opened its doors to new people including business travellers, who’ve settled in Ware and chosen serviced apartments as their principal accommodation choice.

Ware’s economy was traditionally centred on the malting industry. At one point, the town was the malting centre of England, famous for its brown malt - which it exported all over the UK. This industry played a key part in driving business travellers to Ware in search of employment opportunities.
