I am programmatically creating a user and wanted to assign a timezone for the user

I am able to successfully create a user by the following code

$user = \Drupal\user\Entity\User::create();
$user->setPassword('1233455');
$user->enforceIsNew();
$user->setEmail($item['Home - Email']);
$user->setUsername($item['First Name']);

How do I assign the timezone?

You can use Set method on user Entity like the following:

$user = \Drupal\user\Entity\User::create();
$user->setPassword('1233455');
$user->enforceIsNew();
$user->setEmail($item['Home - Email']);
$user->setUsername($item['First Name']);
//- Set Time Zone to London 
$user->set('timezone','Europe/London');
$user->save();

NOTE : You can set other fields with set method, for example if you can activate the user with $user->set('status',1); or give him administrator role with $user->set('roles',['administrator']); .
