Driving your hire car in Watford
Watford developed along the banks of the river Colne, going back as far as Roman and even Celtic times. The actual name 'Watford' was first mentioned in 1007 in an Anglo-Saxon charter. Moving into the 21st century, Watford now sits well within the M25 and was developed into a market town during the Industrial Revolution. As the metropolis of London grew, it gradually absorbed Watford within it's boundaries. However, Watford still retains a natural beauty to it, with large green spaces and parks along the banks of the Colne.
For days out in your car, there are loads of activities to drive to. One of the biggest attractions to the area is the Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour. Based in the Borough at Leavesden, every Harry Potter movie was based at the production studio there. Once the films were finished, the studio set got turned into a tour for fans to view the props, animatronics, special effects and costumes.
If you have children under 11 and are looking for a fun way to entertain them for a few hours, then Parents Paradise offers a soft-play centre to keep your kids stimulated. Or perhaps the Fire Brigade Museum will engage them with vintage fire engines, old helmets and station bells. A short drive west of Watford is a beautiful nature reserve that used to be a gravel quarry. The Rickmansworth Aquadome is at the north end of the Colne Valley Regional Park, with two large naturally filled lakes. The lakes are surrounded by oaks and willows, giving shelter to wildlife such as kingfishers, herons and butterflies. For the more adventurois of you, there is also sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
