National and international visitors and businesses, alongside local residents, can now explore what makes Watford a great place to live, work, visit and invest in via this website.  From great parks and open spaces, places to eat, things to do, venues and a business friendly environment, Watford is already a destination of choice for many and we want to ensure that we continue to support our local economy by broadcasting our message to a wider audience.

The website showcases the wide range of events that take place in Watford throughout the year along with the best of Watford’s attractions, restaurants and hotels.  Residents can check out the latest events calendar and register to receive regular updates on what’s on and things to do.

Watford is already the destination of choice for businesses large and small because of our educated and skilled residents, transport connectivity and location in greater London.

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “The website highlights some of the best features of the Watford, whether you are a resident finding hidden secrets and learning more about where you live or a tourist/business visiting, it helps you to understand the location and setting of the area and what you can do in the district.

We also want to define Watford as the place to create a premier tourist and investment destination for the UK, and the new website will help people discover and explore all Watford has to offer”.

A few words from Visit Watford during Coronavirus

During these testing times, we all need to stay active and make compromises. We know that the reason you usually come to our channels is for a dose of inspiration and ideas on the very best ways to organise your visit or spend your free time across Watford.

Making a trip out of the house to explore over the coming weeks is not recommended by the government and we want you to stay safe and protect your loved ones. However, here at Visit Watford we are still committed to sharing with you everything that’s great about our town.

Thus, you may see some changes to the content we’ll be posting; with more of a focus on supporting our community, sharing a few things to look forward to, and providing a little distraction during times where you may be stuck indoors.

We’ll be championing Watford’s independent businesses, keeping you up to date with great stories from our community and continuing to share incredible photos from across the area which we hope will put a smile on your face – visit our social media channels for more.

Got ideas of content you’d like to see from us? Nominate your neighbour or friend as a local hero, if you think they deserve a special mention – we’d love to hear your story! Get in touch at or share it on social media & tag us/ use the hashtag #watfordlocalhero.

Stay safe,
