Watford is a busy town with an extensive and colourful history! Sitting on the doorstep of Greater London, Watford is a major centre for entertainment, culture, business, and sport, and is the home of the much-loved Watford Football Club. Visitors can take time out by strolling in the beautiful Cassiobury Park, enjoying live music at the popular Horns Pub, or engaging with culture at the Pumphouse.
If shopping is more your bag, the newly-named Atria Watford houses over 140 shops, restaurants, and leisure attractions, which we think will keep even the most retail-averse individual satisfied!
History buffs can quench their thirst for knowledge at the fascinating Watford Museum, housed within the beautiful 18th Century Grade II listed building, which used to be the former offices of Benskins Brewery. Telling the story of Watford past and present, the museum has displays of local history, industry and archaeology – you might even find some memorabilia from a local Rocketman!
For those interested in spending quality time together, the Watford Big Events website provides an excellent overview of the vibrant, diverse cultural experiences and events that are funded throughout the year by Watford Borough Council.
And, of course, for the foodies amongst you, Watford has a lot of independent and chain restaurants, many of which are within walking distance of our beautiful theatre. The Watford BID offers a comprehensive list of local eateries to appeal to a multitude of taste buds!
