The Bickerdikes Garden Centre and the Triangle convenience store are also within easy reach. However, the town centre is not much further, boasting the Garden Square Shopping Mall incorporating a branch of Sainsbury’s, a mix of high street chain stores and independent shops and businesses.

The town centre is also home to a larger branch of Morrison’s, a good selection of restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, pubs and bars as well as an independent cinema and theatre, a library and Howard Park, popular in the summer with families visiting the paddling pool and adventure play area.
Public transport links available include regular buses from stops on Green Lane offering regular connections to the town centre. Thameslink and Great Northern trains from Letchworth City run direct to Cambridge, Brighton and London King’s Cross, the latter usually little more than 45 minutes away.
