This Hertfordshire town lies just to the north-west of London, maintaining great links to the UK capital, while sitting within the popular home counties region.
Nestled just within the M25 and next to the M1, Watford can be found in the county of Hertfordshire, just to the north-west of London. Serviced apartments in Watford are popular, as it makes a great commuter town for the capital, due to its excellent transport links. Add to this the charming Hertfordshire countryside that can be reached nearby, and the fact that Watford punches well above its relatively small size in business, and the call for short term rentals there is no surprise. Watford is a major retail centre for the home counties and home to the head offices of major companies like JD Wetherspoon, Mothercare and the Camelot Group.
As mentioned, Watford has excellent access to the UK road network, with the M1, a major route northwards, lying just to the east and the M25 to the north of the town. There are also three train stations and even Zone 7 access to the London Underground via the Metropolitan Line. By car, Heathrow Airport is usually only about 40 minutes away.
While staying in Watford serviced apartments, it’s worth knowing that the town has several theatres and museums, as well as an enormous number of public parks, eight of which have earned Green Flag awards. The Leavesden Film Studios, a Warner Bros. studio, is partially open to the public and houses the ‘Making of Harry Potter’ studio tour.
