In contrast to the pervasive anti?suburbanism of English intellectual culture, this article suggests that the suburbs have made a generally favourable contribution to English society since 1919. This is because suburban living has been pursued and enjoyed by millions of people from different class and ethnic groups. The article also demonstrates that the attractions of the suburbs stemmed in no small part from the influence of garden city and garden suburb experiments in early twentieth century England.
