Do I need to state the reason for my departure in my resignation letter?

Not if you are leaving on good terms. As a practical point, a pleasant resignation letter may result in a more positive reference.  

If you are leaving as part of a constructive dismissal claim, the alleged breach(es) should be included in the letter.
