Watford forms part of the London-Hertfordshire-Cambridge pharmaceutical and biotech cluster which is home to one of the world’s leading concentrations of healthcare companies, talent and research, providing:

  • Ready access to a large pool of pharmaceutical and healthcare employees within a short travel time
  • Access to research talent with five of Europe’s top research universities within 1 hour
  • Fast, easy access to UK regulatory bodies and government departments in central London
  • The Pharmaceutical Industry Network Group, affectionately known as PING, was established in 2010 by the Pharmaceuticals & Life Sciences practice of Watford-based law firm Veale Wasbrough Vizards LLP to bring people together from across the pharmaceutical supply chain in the local area.

    From its founding membership of seven local businesses PING has grown significantly and now boasts over 100 sector members from Watford, Hertfordshire and beyond.

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
