Walkern is a thriving community with excellent local amenities such as a well regarded primary school, village shop and Post Office, petrol station with garage, two pub/restaurants, tea room, milk-shake bar, sports and community hall, and even a DIY shop, art gallery and antiques shop. Just a ten minute drive away is the town of Stevenage with its excellent High Street shops, schools at all levels and other facilities, the Old Town being well known for its good selection of pubs and restaurants. Stevenage railway station has regular fast trains to London Kings Cross, and also sits next to the A1, making it perfect for busy commuters who want to escape the rat race.
