Letchworth Garden City - Letchworth Garden City is a town in north Hertfordshire with a population of 33,600. Designed in the early 20th Century to combine the benefits of town and country, Letchworth Garden City was the worlds first example of this concept and succeeds to this day in achieving its aim. The town's name is taken from one of the three villages it absorbed (the other two being Willian and Norton) all of which featured in the Domesday Book. The town was laid out by Raymond Unwin as a demonstration of the principles established by Ebenezer Howard who sought to create an alternative to the industrial city by combining the best of town and country living.

As one of the world's first new towns and the first garden city it had great influence on future town planning. Nowadays, Letchworth Garden City retains many fine open spaces, including the 63 acre Norton Common, and enjoys a magnificent four-screen Art Deco cinema, which features current film releases and streams major theatre and opera events. There are multiple interest groups within the Letchworth Arts & Leisure Group and Letchworth Arts Centre. St Francis and St Christopher schools offer high quality education. Letchworth Rugby Club, founded in 1903 and several activity centres support healthy living.
