Watford Hotels - London

Mini guide to Watford


Watford, with about 80,000 inhabitants, lies just 20 miles north of Central London. As the railway and canal network grew, people moved out of London and settled in Watford, which was quickly becoming an industrialised town with many light industries and printing. Watford is also a haven for sports fans - its local football team achieved promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 1998/1999 season and the fortunes of the Rugby Club - the Saracens - are followed keenly.

Watford has numerous parks, miles of cycle-tracks, canals and open space and is an excellent destination for a short break. Visit Callowland Recreational Park, Cassiobury Park, Garston Park, Chesslyn House and Garden.

The Harlequin Shopping Centre, located in the town centre, is Watford's premier shopping mall, boasting over 140 stores, including department stores such as Trewins, BHS and Marks & Spencers, as well as many restaurants.

On the cultural front, Watford has something for all tastes and budgets. The Palace Theatre, a building of charming Edwardian elegance, puts on about nine performances a year. Watford's Colosseum regularly hosts both pop and classical music, hard-core clubbers head for Destiny nightclub and those looking for a laugh, go to Jongleurs Comedy Club to hear the nation's best comics at work.

Although not very convenient for daily visits to Central London, Watford is a nice area to visit for the weekend. This area is serviced by the Metropolitan Line and faster mainline rail services. At Baker Street, it is possible to change trains to access Central London.
