Travel Tips for Hitchin

Hitchin Church

by CandS

The Hitchin Church is a very old church in town...it's a beautiful building and when we were there, there were a lot of people enjoying the shady areas under the trees... Along with the cute squirrels scampering around... :)

Hitchin RFC Rugby Club

by ATXtraveler

If you are lucky enough to be in this location during Hitchin's rugby season, I would definitely stop in and catch a match. These were a bunch of fun guys to hang out with before and after the game, and they were definitely a good side.

I would highly recommend catching up!

Hitchin A Town near to Luton

"Visiting Hitchin since 1966"

A reason for visiting this town which is unknown to tourist is because my sister lives here and I know her neighbours and friends and have watched this little town grow up. Can't say that all the changes are positive but the population has increased as well as the housing.

Hitchin is a market town in North Hertfordshire, a region which has been settled for thousands of years evidence found date from the Bronze Age to the Roman Empire.

The name Hitchin dates back to AD600 named by a Saxon tribe, the Hicce.
Over the next 900 years Hitchin grew and its wealth came from the trade in wool and the St. Mary's church, a massive building which still stands today was built.

In th 19th and 20th centuries the Tuesday market drew people from the surrounding villages and when the railway was built in 1850 people came from further afield.

Trading in Cattle and livestock was in Bancroft, and later in Paynes Park, and general market goods were traded in the Market Place which still exists today in not in Market Square but near to the river Hiz by St. Mary's Square.

In the valley of the Hiz there is a villa at Great Wymondly and in the town of Hitchin itself Roman occupation material has been found. From Hitchin to Letchworth along the Roman road which ran parallel with the Icknield Way Roman occupation and burials have been recorded. only leaving their former homes in small groups.

Nice Bit of English Countryside

by ATXtraveler

"English Countryside and Rugby Town"

Located in the English Countryside north of London, Hitchin is a nice small town with very friendly people, and a very fun rugby team.

I would highly recommend this off the beaten path spot to visit during your next trip to Jolly Ole England.
