Heritage trails: a flourish of garden city guides

Heritage Trails

Start exploring here …  It was a fascinating brief. We were really inspired and honoured when historian and curator of the International Garden Cities Institute, Josh Tidy, briefed Bonfire to design and create a series of ‘heritage trail’ leaflets and activities. We couldn’t wait to explore more.

Letchworth Garden City

As a city that pioneered a revolutionary philosophy around town planning, there’s a lot to discover in Letchworth Garden City. It’s also a prime location for international students, tourists and history enthusiasts looking to find out about its rich heritage, the garden city concept and its founder, Ebenezer Howard.

Walking through history

Pick up any of the leaflets for an illustrated guide to explore different aspects of Letchworth Garden City. The suite of leaflets help visitors uncover every side of the city, with footnotes to iconic sites, parks and buildings.
