The World's First Garden City

Everyday essentials

Everyday essentials

From multi-range supermarket and convenience shopping to local shoe repairers, dry cleaners and stationers, Letchworth provides all the essential everyday services that are the lifeblood of any community.

Need to book a flight or seeking ideas for your next holiday in the sun? Call in at one of our town centre travel agents offering the kind of personal service and first-hand experience of holiday destinations you’ll never get from a website alone.

Looking for health advice in a hurry? Our pharmacies dispense patient prescriptions for all the doctors’ surgeries in the town and can advise you on the most appropriate treatment for minor ailments.

These days, of course, ‘everyday essentials’ extend well beyond the customary butcher, baker and Post Office to services almost unheard of even 20 years ago, such as computer repair, mobile phone sales and mobility scooter hire. Here, too, the Garden City fits the bill, with stores and services geared to 21st century living.
