Travel options from London to Watford
There are two viable public transport options to get to Watford from London:
1: from Euston By Train (Over Ground)
Watford Junction Station (15-20 minutes' walk from the ground) is 20 minutes on a fast train from Euston, or it takes longer out to Watford High Street Station (5-10 minutes' walk from the ground) on a 'slow' train from Euston, as it makes all the local stops. From the station, you actually walk through Watford town centre to get to the ground. It’s a typical UK high street, with a mix of the usual shops and restaurants.
2: 30 minutes from Baker Street By Underground
Watford Metropolitan Line tube station is a 10 minute walk from the stadium. Tube services from Baker Street and the journey time is about 40 minutes. On exiting the ground, turn right and take any of the next few rights to head south. You will be walking through a residential area most of the route.
*At the moment there is no planned engineering works affecting any of the above for the weekend. We will update this info closer to the time.
