Many of our customers are not local to us here in Hitchin, and can travel some way to come and see our beautiful collections so we thought we would give our brides-to-be a short ‘guide to Hitchin’ to make their visit as pleasurable as possible. Hitchin is a lovely market town in Hertfordshire with plenty of independent shops, restaurants and cafes. It has a large market square and a thriving antiques and general market.
Getting To Hitchin
Hitchin has a mainline train station linked to London, Cambridge and Peterborough and then links north. It is easy to pop into a cab outside the station and come straight down to Morgan Davies in Hitchin town centre. If you are driving then we are conveniently situated in between the M1 and the A1, so very easy to get to. Hitchin has several town centre car parks that are close to us so you won’t have to walk far. Our full contact details and a map can be found here.
Time for Coffee?
We think that Hitchin must have some of the best coffee shops around. One of our favourites is The Coffee Lab, just a few doors away from us on Sun Street. Great tasting coffee and the most delicious cakes ever!
Ladies That Lunch
If you need something a bit more substantial than a coffee, then Hitchin has some very tasty restaurants to try. For a more casual lunch go to The Groundworks who are inspired by London eateries and middle-eastern cafés, which packs some great taste. They are passionate about creating a communal environment where you will feel very welcome.
Another great place to eat, just a minute away from Morgan Davies, is The Lounge at Chilli B’s for fantastic light lunches, or even a tasty breakfast. They have a sandwich bar for the most delicious sandwiches, baguettes or ciabattas, and a lovely restaurant if you would like to sit and relax.
