There are regular services to London Kings Cross throughout the day, the fastest of which take only 27 minutes; Cambridge is 28 minutes away in the opposite direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is 2.3 miles away by car. The house is also less than 2 miles from Hitchin railway station and just 2.3 miles from Hitchin town centre.
Designed in the early 20th Century to combine the benefits of town and country, Letchworth Garden City was the world’s first example of this concept and succeeds to this day in achieving its aim and the town provides excellent schools, shops, open spaces and leisure facilities.
