Set within a prosperous north London commuter town, intu Watford has all the top brands. And guess what, it’s about to get even better...
Anchored by John Lewis, intu Watford is the place to shop attracting visitors from the local town and from all across the affluent Home Counties and surrounding London boroughs.
Since opening its doors in the 1990’s the centre has continued to evolve and is home to quality brands, such as Apple, Kurt Geiger, MAC, Zara and Thomas Sabo, which keep customers coming back time and time again. And, our multi-million pound investment has enhanced the centre by adding even more fantastic retail brands, places to eat and leisure choices including Hollywood Bowl and Cineworld giving intu Watford the 'wow' factor and delivering a ‘go to’ destination from morning, right through into the evening.

intu Watford's £180 million leisure extension proves that if you get the mix of shopping and leisure right, visitors will come. But more than that, investing in retail can have a lasting change on the wider area, injecting new life into town and city centres and improving prosperity far outside the shopping centre's walls.

Our multi-million pound investment has elevated Watford to a top-20 retail destination
intu Watford is a thriving shopping centre and our transformative extension project has made it bigger and better.
Our £180 million investment has created an impressive single1.4 million sq ft retail and leisure destination to entice visitors from further, more often and, to stay for longer.
We’ve created space for even more great retail brands such as Debenhams, Superdry and Jack Wills. We've also introduced a variety of new and interesting restaurant concepts such as The Florist and leisure activities for the whole family to enjoy, including a nine-screen IMAX Cineworld cinema and Hollywood Bowl.
intu Watford has become one of the best shopping towns in the UK, providing customers with even more reasons to visit and explore all that the town has to offer from morning into the evening.
We’ve transformed the centre into a contemporary shopping experience providing a fantastic place to shop, eat and play. The development has massively strengthened intu Watford as a destination retailers want to invest in and our visitors enjoy"

A positive impact
Driving the local economy
Because customers are at the heart of what we do, we believe it’s important to invest in the communities we’re a part of to give them a place they can be proud of.
This development is about more than the physical space. It’s about the relationships we’re able to build with local people and businesses, the creation of hundreds of jobs during the build and beyond, and the broader economic benefits that additional leisure and retail provides for the town of Watford, as it becomes a top 20 retail and leisure destination, alongside Bristol and Edinburgh.

Off on a big adventure
Our much loved wooden animals that were once the centrepiece of Charter Place have been getting ready for a big adventure. Since our development works commenced we’ve given the animals some time rest - we even treated them to a nice coat of varnish to make sure they looked tip top for their outing, Now they can be found at their new home at the Cha Cha Cha café in Cassiobury Park where they'll continue to be enjoyed by the community for years to come!
