Hitchin Certificated Locations

The market town of Hitchin is situated in the English county of Hertfordshire, on the banks of the small, picturesque River Hiz.

It is perhaps most famous for St Mary's Parish Church, which is particularly large for a town of this size and is testament to the success of the wool trade here in years gone by. You can walk along the river and look back at the church for a great, chocolate-box photo opportunity.

Hitchin is ideal for shoppers, as it is proud to host an array of independent stores. You can also check out Hitchin Market each Tuesday and Saturday, on top of monthly specialist markets.

Other highlights in the vicinity include the British Schools Museum showcasing education through history, Bancroft Gardens, the Hitchin Priory for afternoon tea and Windmill Hill for panoramic views.

In summer, don't miss Hitchin Lavender, a farm where you can pick your own lavender straight from the fields, and the Arts & Music Festival each July.
