Due to the pandemic, we’re currently not able to welcome school groups at the museum. We’re constantly reviewing the situation and we hope to be able to welcome schools back in the future. Thank you for your understanding and support.


Due to the current lockdown we have also had to suspend the loan of our boxes - we hope to be able to provide this service in the very near future.

We also have two resource boxes filled with photographs, newspaper articles, paper replicas and a DVD of images which include Watford in WWI and WWII.

High Street Trails

Do you want to learn more about Watford's local history? 


Although sadly we can’t offer our walking tours at the moment, we can instead provide teachers, community groups and societies with a trail route and information to follow the trail themselves.


The tour introduces children to the changing architectural and social history of Watford’s High Street.  On the way, you can spot the date of buildings, find out about Watford’s old police station, see traces of the old market, meet Watford FC’s hornet and discover the Fig Tree Tomb tale!
