Quick Facts
Letchworth is the world’s first Garden City.

Designed to combine the best of town and country, Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City concept for Letchworth included beautiful tree-lined streets and vast green open spaces - most of which remain today.

The Letchworth Garden City Estate covers over 5,500 acres.

Letchworth is home to the UKs first roundabout; that you’ll find at the junction of the Broadway, Sollershott and Spring Road - originally named ‘Sollershott Circus’.

We’re twinned with Wissen, Germany; Chagney, France and Kristiansand, Norway.

There’s only one street in the whole of Letchworth Garden City; Cross Street, which formed part of the fledgling 1905 cottage exhibition.

There’s a 13.6 mile path that surrounds the town, named the Garden City Greenway.

The first wild British black squirrel was spotted in Letchworth in 1912

There’s only one water source flowing through Letchworth Garden City, called Pix Brook.
