The local area
Evidence suggests the land surrounding Watford has been occupied since Celtic and Roman periods, but the story of the town we see today starts much later. Sitting on the banks of the River Colne, the settlement built up around a bridge or crossing spot, with Watford’s high street still following the line of this route to date. Nearby Berkhamsted Castle, the Grand Junction Canal and the London and Birmingham Railway encouraged the town to grow, with paper mills springing up throughout the Industrial Revolution. Today, Watford is a modern and vibrant town, with an excellent selection of bars and restaurants at its centre, while it enjoys beautifully maintained countryside at its fringes.
One of Watford’s biggest draws is its connections to the capital, meaning it’s a popular spot for commuters. The M1 and M25 circle and cross the northern end of town, while there are direct rail services into London every few minutes at peak times. The closest airport to Watford is Heathrow Airport, where you’ll find international flights to almost any destination imaginable. A good road network means its easy to get to nearby towns such as Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, Wembley, Uxbridge and Welwyn Garden City.
Parents will be delighted by education provisions in the area, with primary school options including Watford St John’s CofE and Lancaster Community Free School. Secondary options include the partially-selective Watford Grammar School for Boys and Watford Grammar School for Girls, while a campus of West Herts College provides higher education in the town.
