Letchworth Garden City Guide
Founded in the early 20th century, Letchworth Garden City represented a radical departure in town planning, but set the standard for many of today’s planned urban developments, with careful separation of industrial and residential areas and incorporation of green spaces into the urban environment. The town is characterised by “Arts and Crafts” movement architecture and its original housing is an excellent example of this style. The town has since grown with additional housing to accommodate the increased numbers moving to Letchworth. However, the town retains much of its early 20th century character and the principles which made it such an attractive relocation option for many working families at the time of its original development.
