Following the doctrines of Ebenezer Howard, Letchworth Garden City was designed to cleverly combine the rural feel of the countryside with various amenities including good transport links, and shopping and leisure facilities. There is a Heritage Foundation, which works to preserve the legacy of the town to ensure that its traditional charm is maintained.
Now very much catering to the needs of the 21st Century, the town has a gentrified air with elegant and stylish homes set in large gardens surrounded by mature trees. It is claimed that in keeping with the ambitions of the time, only one tree was felled during the entire initial construction phase of the town.
Interestingly until the late 1950's Letchworth was very much a dry' town and even to this day the town centre has fewer than half a dozen pubs - a remarkably low number for a town of its size. Letchworth Garden City has a good choice of high street stores, speciality gift shops and restaurants. The local area offers a vast array of attractions including museums, a three screen cinema, historic houses, parks, gardens, art galleries and the renowned Letchworth Golf Club.
There is a wide range of schools in the district. Independent schools include St Francis College, St Christopher, Kingshott School, The Princess Helena College and Heath Mount School. There are also The Harpur Trust Schools in Bedford and The Perse Schools and The Leys in Cambridge.
Communications are excellent; the A1(M) (J9) is 2.8 miles distant, whilst fast and frequent trains leave from Letchworth Garden City Station, just over a mile away, and arrive at London Kings Cross from 29 minutes. London Luton airport is just over 13 miles away and Stansted Airport 26 miles approximately.
