Town & Borough in England
Watford ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
Watford is a town and borough in Hertfordshire, England, 15 miles (24 km) northwest of central London. It is situated on the River Colne, and initially developed as a small market town until the Grand Junction Canal encouraged the construction of paper-making mills, print works, and breweries. While industry has declined in Watford, its location near to London and to good transport links has attracted several companies to site their headquarters in the town. It contains Cassiobury Park, a public park that was once the manor estate of the Earls of Essex, and Watford Football Club, a professional team who in the 2019/20 season play in the Premier League – the highest level of English football.
