Watford’s premier location for European and national headquarter and regional offices, Clarendon Road connects Watford Junction to Watford town centre, so offers dual benefit of proximity to a major transport hub with short travel times to London and beyond, and amenity provision which is high on the agenda of employees.

Redevelopment of several sites along the road is underway which will deliver new grade A office space along with active ground floor uses.  New development sites will become available as office consolidations are completed.

Watford Borough Council, in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council and Hertfordshire LEP, is investing c. £10m on an enhancement scheme on Clarendon Road.

The vision is to widen pavements and narrow the road to create a safe, pedestrian-friendly environment which supports cycling, walking and public amenity, transforming the street’s character from its current use as predominantly a traffic dominated road with ‘closed’ frontages to a greener, more open, multifunctional space.

Details of the scheme can be viewed at www.clarendon-road.co.uk.

“New development sites on the Clarendon Road have bolstered the supply pipeline, and when coupled with the significant regeneration underway within the town centre, the Watford market has strengthened its appeal to the occupier while presenting a positive rental growth story to the investor.”

A few words from Visit Watford during #COVID19

We know that the reason you usually come to our channels is for a dose of inspiration, a hint of escapism, and ideas on the very best ways to spend your free time across Watford. We also know that there is a huge amount of uncertainty right now though.

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. However, here at Visit Watford we are still committed to sharing with you everything that’s great about our town.

You may see some changes to the content we’ll be posting; with more of a focus on supporting our local businesses, 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 above all else – continuing to share incredible photos from across the area which we hope will put a smile on your face.

Got ideas of content you’d like to see from us? Maybe a local hero you think deserves a special mention? Get in touch at marketing@visitwatford.com.

Stay safe,
Visit Watford team
