The Arcade

This historical 1922 covered shopping arcade is home to a selection of independent and specialist retailers, including: a traditional sweet shop, travel agent, jewellers and arts centre.

In 2009, the The Arcade underwent a major £500,000 facelift, funded by the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation. Bringing a modern and updated look to this part of the town, you'll find this jewel in the Garden City's shopping crown is a great place to browse for that little something special. See the Gallery below for a selection of photographs following the refurbishment.
