Ware is known for its elaborate font with large carved stone figures and famous for its many 18th-century riverside gazebos, several of which have been restored recently.

Ware is also well known for the Great Bed of Ware, which was mentioned by Shakespeare in his works.

With a population of just under 20,000 people and known as a good old market town, which hasn’t been spoilt, and beyond it lies what estate agents like to call the golden box – a group of handsome villages in a landscape that, despite its proximity to London, preserves a feeling of remoteness.

Ware has a strong sense of history.
