Historic Walking Tour

Hitchin Town Centre
7pm- 8.15pm

From High Street to Dead Street: This walk looks at how Hitchin’s rich and poor lived close together but worlds apart.

Discover how people lived in the many slums and alleys and how their lives were improved by public health reforms and education. The tour looks at some of the town’s most high status buildings and the few remaining echoes of Dead Street!
