Our Town Centre is home to our fabulous Shopping District,  a High Street full of wonderful places to eat, drink, meet up, play and stay. 

 At the very centre is Hertfordshire’s top shopping destination,  Atria, with over 140 shops, featuring some of the biggest brand names around.  Alongside some superb restaurants and leisure attractions.  Atria make it so very easy to spend a day or simply shop – with excellent mother and baby facilities, accessible parking spaces, tap and go parking,  electric car parking, shopmobility service, banking, post office and a car wash.   

Watford loves you to #shoplocal and it is positively encouraged.   From small retail independents to creative food outlets and the thriving culture of our Market and its late night social events,  there is much to attract you to our town.  From the High Street itself to hidden gems nearby. 

We have a host of other magical venues along the High Street, from fantastic theatres and music spaces,  to places to dine, drink, play, meet, or dance.

Our Town Centre is award winning and we work hard to keep it exciting, entertaining and a place to enjoy visiting.  Day or night.   Year round.
