Best Things To Do & Days Out In Watford

Enjoy all the amazing things to do in Watford and have a magical family time any time of the year!

Parents Paradise may sound more like a spa than a soft play, however if the children are happy and entertained then parents can relax! Right in the centre of Watford this multi-level play frame even has a go-karting track and a shooting area.

Meet friendly animals at Farmyard Funworld or go for a walk through ancient woodland at Whippendell Woods

On this Watford family day out head travel a few miles to visit Gambado, an all-encompassing play area. Children can scale the climbing wall, race around the play frame, ride the dodgems and there’s a special sensory area for toddlers.

You may not stay there long though as soon as the children realise what’s on your doorstep. The Warner Bros Studio Tour London will whisk you into the world of Harry Potter. Go behind the scenes and see your favourite artefacts, storylines and characters. Practice your spells and catch the train on platform 9 and 3/4!
