History and description

The English football club Watford FC moved to Vicarage Road in 1922 after having played at a ground on Cassio Road for 23 years. The club's first match occurred on the 30th of August 1922 against Millwall. The Vicarage Road back then consisted of two small covered stands and several terraces. One of these stands, the Union Stand, had been brought from Watford's previous round on Cassio Road. A decade later, the Union Stand got replaced by a new stand, the Shrodells Stand.

Ground developments in the 1950s and 1960s included an extension to the Main Stand in 1969.

In 1986, a new stand was erected at the Shrodells baseball field. The Rous Stand consisted of two tiers, and it introduced corporate facilities to the ground.

In 1993 and 1995, following the recommendation of the Taylor report, two new stands were built at each end of the main stand from 1922. This left the original main stand and its extension in place.

The original part of the main stand was closed in 2004 after safety concerns were raised, but it was demolished in 2010 because there were still doubts about its safety.

Plans were made for the construction of a new stand, which got delayed until 2014 when the new Sir Elton John Stand opened. Soon after Watford's promotion to the Premier League, the stand got expanded with additional rows of seating towards the pitch.

How to get to Vicarage Road

The vicarage road is located close to Watford's high street. The walk west from the town centre takes no more than 10 minutes. Regular trains depart London Euston for Watford Junction rail station. The journey takes about 20 minutes. The stadium is another 20 minutes walking from the station, or take bus 10 in the direction of Holywell. Buses leave regularly.

The London Overground is another option that stops at Watford Junction as well as Watford High Street Rail station. High Street station lies closer to the ground, just a 10-minute walk. The journey by London Overground takes twice as long as that by National Rail though.

Watford is connected to London by the underground. Watford tube station is the last stop of one of the branches of the Metropolitan line. It takes about 40 minutes to get there from Baker Street, which means that you can be in Watford in about 1 mile north-west of Vicarage Road, or a 20-minute walk.

The entrance will be on the right, just after the stadium.

Address: Vicarage Road, Watford, WD18 0ER

Eat, drink, or sleep near Vicarage Road

The Vicarage Road is located in the town centre of Watford and while it is not the most exciting part of the Greater London area, it has a reliable mix of high street chain restaurants and local pubs. There is no great selection of hotels in Watford, but the national chains Premier Inn, Jurys Inn, and Best Western are all accessible and satisfactory options. The Holiday Inn Watford Junction is further away, but has better reviews.

Watford Tickets

Tickets for Watford FC games can be purchased online, by phone, or at the Ticket Office at Vicarage Road. If tickets remain available, these tickets can also be bought at the Ticket Office on the day of the match, though Watford sell out most matches since returning to the Premier League.

Tickets cost £36.00 for a seat behind the goal or the lower Sir Elton John Stand, £40.00 for the upper Sir Elton John Stand, and £42.00 for the goal stand.
