Introduction to Garden Cities
The First Garden City Heritage Museum has undergone large-scale refurbishment with new displays and research facilities. The museum will now be home to The International Garden Cities Exhibitions. We aim to tell the story of Letchworth’s legacy and influence across the world.
What is a Garden City?
A Garden City is a town designed for industry and healthy living; of a size that makes possible a full measure of social lie, but not larger; surrounded by a permanent belt of rural land; the whole of the land being in public ownership or held in trust for the community. C.B. Purdom, 1919
