Taxi Services

The nearest taxi ranks to us are on Albert Road South (a six-minute walk) and at Watford Junction (a ten-minute walk). Our Welcome Team will also be happy to book a taxi for you.


There’s several different options for parking if you’re coming by car. We suggest using Sutton Car Park (WD17 2PS) on Estcourt Road, which is less than a 5-minute walk away. Please be aware the lift’s are currently out of order so may not be suitable for some patrons.

You can also use Charter car park* (WD17 2UB), which is part of the Atria Watford shopping centre (not to be confused with the Palace carpark: nothing to do with us, honest!). Charter car park is on the right-hand side, as if you were parking for the cinema. It’s just round the corner from us and also less than a 5-minute walk away.

You might also want to try Gade (WD18 0JX) or Church (WD18 0JD) car parks.

All of the car parks above have disabled parking available.

*Please note: Charter car park has a dual entrance with the Palace car park. The Palace car park is NOT open 24 hours and does NOT have step-free access.
