There are some fantastic streets and locations in the local area, and the sense of community is strong. Even though everyone has endured a tough time of late, we are proud of how Hitchin has responded, with some parts of the town looking better and brighter than ever.

Sun Street is a familiar destination

Hitchin's Sun Street is in the historic quarter of the town, and is known for its independent businesses as well as being celebrated each summer on Bucklersbury and Sun Street Day.”

Bucklersbury has a great history

Bucklersbury and Sun Street Day originated as just Bucklersbury Day, celebrating this historic street and drawing crowds from far and wide.”

Churchyard is quaint with a great backstory

A tiny, cobbled street, Churchyard leads into Churchyard Walk and towards St Mary's Church, which is the largest parish church in Hertfordshire - the present building of which dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries.”

Hermitage Road is blooming

Hermitage Road is one of the main business areas in Hitchin, and home to the annual Hermitage Road Day - which celebrates local shops with an array of live music, street entertainment and food.”
