Located in the world's first garden city, Letchworth Hotels are an ideal choice if you're looking to combine the best of town and country, from shopping in farmers' markets to visiting local arts centres.
Although the history of Letchworth can be traced back to the 12th and 13th centuries, it wasn't until the 19th century that the town took on its shape as a garden city. Following the publication of Ebenezer Howard's book, To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform in 1898, Letchworth was redeveloped to combine the advantages of cities and the countryside. One of the best places to learn about this ethos surrounding Letchworth is The International Garden Cities Exhibition. Also worth a visit to learn about Ebenezer Howard is the Howard Memorial Hall, Letchworth Garden City's first public building.
Letchworth has a strong local arts scene, and the town boasts a number of excellent galleries. Letchworth Arts Centre is the main cultural hub in Letchworth and in addition to exhibitions, hosts an impressive range of talks, classes, theatre, comedy and dance performances. The Imperial Arts Audio Gallery (IAAG) is the best place in the town to find contemporary art and design, and features a varied line-up of live music. If you're travelling with kids, the Dot to Dot gallery, with its regular raft activities, is a fantastic place to have fun making art.
