We think Hitchin is a rather special sort of place. There is much to be proud of in Hitchin.  Not only for its exceptional sense of community, but also for what the town has to offer residents and visitors alike. It is a rare survival of a traditional market town, yet within easy reach of London.  It is rich in medieval and Georgian buildings, while its ancient street pattern remains for all to see to this day.


The Hitchin Society is dedicated to protecting all that is best in our town, while helping to make Hitchin an even better place in which to live, work or relax.


If you share these views about Hitchin, you may find that the Hitchin Society provides a way of finding out more about the town, and keeping Hitchin special for all to enjoy, now and in the future.
