The Garden City Greenway is an interesting circular route that surrounds Letchworth estate allowing you to discover the countryside without ever straying far from the town; it truly is ‘where town and country meet’.
With over 13 miles of beautiful countryside, the Garden City Greenway provides a perfect setting for a range of outdoor activities. The routes, open spaces and points of interest makes the Greenway an ideal retreat for people of all ages and abilities.
The route circumnavigates Letchworth, taking in many of the beautiful parts of the countryside, wildlife and nature unable to be seen by road. It gives a completely different perspective of the area. From one end it touches Hitchin and the other end you get a glimpse of Baldock.
The Greenway was a one million pound project funded by the Heritage Foundation, to act as a permanent commemoration of Letchworth Garden City’s first centenary in 2003. Its continued improvements gives people more access for the enjoyment of nature, wildlife and all the benefits.
