Property in Hitchin is mixed in style and reflects the changing trends through the decades. Almost every type and size will be on the market at any given time, with something for everyone, whether grand or modest.
House prices in Hitchin are extremely reasonable and you can buy a three-bedroom terraced house, a good-sized four-bedroom semi, or a flat at prices that definitely won't break the bank.
Hitchin is home to good quality schools, leisure facilities and excellent shops. There is a bustling market three days a week, as well as speciality shops for the discerning shopper, plus all the high street stores.
Culture vultures need not miss out either, with two theatres in the town, live music venues, a weekly folk club and a two-day music festival every summer. Not bad for a middle England town deep in the heart of Hertfordshire - boredom is definitely not on the agenda here!
