'Discover Letchworth can help you plan all your leisure time'

Discover Letchworth has been designed to reach those who want to do something out and about in the Garden City. The former Tourist and Information Centre, previously based on Station Road, has been revamped thanks to feedback from the community and now brings together everything there is to see and do whether you live here or are a visitor.

Letchworth has so much to offer; whether you want to join an arts and leisure group, catch a show or movie at Broadway Cinema & Theatre, explore the different routes on the Greenway or shop for gifts inspired by Letchworth produced by local artists (I mean who doesn't love a bit of shopping).  Discover Letchworth can help you plan all your leisure time. 

My age group can sometimes get a hard time for being lazy (OK, sometimes we can be), so to entice younger people outdoors there are lots of relaxing things to do in Letchworth. Discover Letchworth is a relaxing place to go to find out what events and activities are happening - for starters, there's the Cinema & Theatre where you can sit down again and stuff your face with popcorn! There's some great shopping or perhaps go for a stroll around the Greenway.

Some people may prefer to go online to find the information they need. But Discover Letchworth gives you the chance to use its new touch screen for a quick and interactive browse around its website, while being able to chat to the team about planning a day out in and around the town.

With so many green open spaces, why sit in your garden when you can sit in the Norton Common, Broadway Gardens or Howard Park? Discover Letchworth promotes all of Letchworth's green spaces and routes with maps, guides and even environmentally inspired postcards inspired by local parks. The space also displays the town's rich history, by covering the walls with original and modern maps. Its huge windows allow rays of sunshine to come strobing through, making it a relaxing environment. The staff make you feel extremely welcome, and that is what makes this town so special - its people. The people make the town, and without them, what would Letchworth be? So come on out, pull up a chair, and see what’s on in the Garden City. Or if you are my age, maybe I should say, what’s up!
