Welcome back to Watford town centre – shop local, stay safe

Watford town centre, and other retail areas across the town, are gearing up to welcome people back as non-essential shops and venues have started to re-open, with a range of measures in place to make sure they can shop safely and with confidence.

Shops and businesses are doing what is needed to keep their staff and customers safe. We are looking forward to welcoming people back to the High Street and other shopping areas across the town. Whilst they may look and feel a bit different, we are all looking forward to a return of some sort of normality, bringing vibrancy back to the town!

Watford businesses have done an amazing job to make sure they can open safely, while we all as individuals should do our part keeping a safe distance from others and washing or sanitising our hands regularly.
