Recommended Tour Of Hitchin
Hitchin is sandwiched between the contrasting towns of Letchworth and Stevenage.
Letchworth was the world's first Garden City (designed on principles of a pleasant environment for all citizens).It lacks nightlife but has improved in recent years with the opening of more pubs.It is well worth visiting during the day.
Stevenage is quite a contrast.It has been described as a vast cultural wasteland and is a large new town - virtually a city in size.It is devoid of a music scene and historical attractions but nightlife has improved in recent years with the leisure park.It is home to the Gordon Craig Theatre and for general non specialist shopping(clothes/food)it is superior to Hitchin and Letchworth.
