Hitchin by DayHitchin offers a vibrant shopping area with many independent retailers, some deliciously quirky boutiques and many shops that you simply won’t find anywhere else. Restaurants and cafes throughout the town provide welcome meeting places and rest stops for the weary shopper.
The market is an attraction to the town every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. As well as general stalls, there is a specialist antiques and bric-a-brac theme on Friday, a local produce and crafts market on the last Saturday of each month in a riverside setting and on Sunday mornings bargain hunters flock to the car boot sale.
For those who are into sport there are plenty of different clubs to join, including football, rugby, hockey, running, cycling, and swimming, with a choice of leisure and fitness centres.
