Letchworth Garden City is located in Hertfordshire, 40 minutes from London. It is the first garden city with many green spaces and an interesting heritage from the 19th century.

Letchworth is considered to be one of the best places to live in the UK, so people come here to escape from the bustle of the city and London housing prices. According to MyLondon, Letchworth has a good and fast connection to London, and houses are 340 thousand pounds cheaper than those in the capital. That is why this place is increasingly chosen by families looking for a cozy suburban life.

In addition, the 13.6-mile Greenway runs around the city, which will appeal to those who like to take circular walks around the city in the fresh air and keep fit. Even more greenery awaits tourists at Howard Park and Gardens. There is also an outdoor swimming pool and the Standalone Farm, which is designed for family recreation.
