“…It is deeply to be deplored that the people should continue to stream into the already over-crowded cities, and should thus further deplete the country districts…” Ebenezer Howard, ‘Garden Cities of Tomorrow’, 1902


Guided Walks

Join Letchworth’s Town Historian on a stroll through some of the highlights of the first Garden City’s history. Our walking route will be gentle, and punctuated with stops where we can dig deeper into the history of certain buildings.

Starting at the Tourist Information Centre, on Station Road, these tours will finish at The International Garden Cities Exhibition, where you can enjoy free Fair Trade Tea & Coffee and discover more about the history of Letchworth, Ebenezer Howard, and the Garden City Movement – and its legacy across the world.

The walking tours should take approximately 2.5 hours.
