Watford (England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... in Watford is that most places are within walking distance of each other. You can walk from the Harlequin to the large Tescos - something you can't do in Milton Keynes (the Milton Keynes large Tescos is a few miles away from the city centre in a place called Kingston). LEISURE Watford has two brand new public leisure centres (including swimming pools), both of which opened in 2008. One is located on the edge of the town centre, near the duck pond/public library. The other is located just outside Watford in a place called Garston. The duck pond is located in the restaurant/night club part, about 400 meters from the Harlequin Centre. He... more

Watford has a lot going for it. Its got good shopping, good leisure facilities, located next to the M1 and M25, has good rail links and is on London's door step. SHOPPING For shopping, you have the Harlequin Centre (Indoor) which has many good shops (including Marks and Spencers, John Lewis, BHS, Whsmiths, HMV etc) and is of a good size. Step outside and you're on the High Street, which also has many shops. Situated to one side of the Harlequin is Charter Place, an outdoor section containing a few shops which looks rather dated and is due for redevelopment. Charter Place leads into Watford Market; an indoor market which runs on Tuesdays, Fridays and ... Read the complete review

WARNING TO ALL VISITORSNever would I visit Watford again and I would recommend other visitors stay away.Parking is atrocious. The signs are misleading and tickets are issued and a vast rate - the wardens know the best areas that visitors are confused. Believe me, I have fallen victim to it.If you get a ticket, the appeal process is not independent! And if you want to take it further it will cost you double. Even residents are complaing about the parking but the council have refused to do anything about it - it's a way of making money.Avoid the area - or it will be a very expensive trip. You have been warned.

Having lived in Watford all my life, I think that I am well equipped to tell you all about it (so what if I’m only 16??). Let us begin with a sprinkling of history: Watford had began primarily as a market town, with many Inns for weary travellers on their way to London (thus the enormous number of pubs nowadays).Watford then grew up in the Victorian Industrial eruption, due to it’s closeness to London, and the various mills that sprung up out of nowhere. To cater for this, a mainline train station was constructed, Watford Junction, and the The Grand Junction (not Union as it is sometimes referred to as) Canal that runs from Brentford to Braunston ...

First of all I'll tell you my favourite thing about Watford. Once, when playing Trivial Pursuits a few years back, I received a question (I think in the Sports category, which is unusual for me to pick, so it may have evn been for a bit of cheese). This question was 'Is there a bull ring in Watford?'. My immediate response was 'of course there isn't, don't you think that I would have noticed a huge bull rink, on at least one of the million occasions that I have been in Watford!' However, I didn't blurt this out straight away (obviously a tense point in the game). Instead I thought about it loads. 'Maybe that big buliding used to be a .. Read the complete review

If you like to shop and you are good at using the old plastic card, Watford is the place for you it has a big shopping centre called the Harlequin situated around a big ring road, where you will find car parks for the harlequin. The Car Parks In the car parks you will find plenty spaces for disabled and people with children spaces. The real disappointment about the car parks are that you have to pay for them and it is quite alot but the good point about the paying thing is that you don’t have to pay on Sunday’s and on Thursdays after 5.00pm. The Shops There are about 150 ... Read the complete review
