Town centre event space, WD17 1NA


If you can’t make it to the beach this year, we’ll bring the beach to you!


With Watford Borough Council’s Big Beach, you don’t need to travel to the coast to feel the sand between your toes – just head to The Parade in the Town Centre!


Big Beach is completely free – and is the perfect chance for people of all ages to lap up the summer sun, with deck chairs and tables provided to help you relax.  There will also be exciting games for you to play, which you’ll be able to get from the shack on the beach – as well as any information you might need. Please note, the shack is open 10am to 4.30pm each day.


Feel free to bring your own food and drink, or if you prefer, Big Beach is surrounded by many fabulous restaurants from which you could order!


We ask that children are supervised by an adult while at the beach, and that you dispose of any rubbish in one of the bins provided around the town.

Keeping safe

The event is run in conjunction with current government Covid-19 guidelines. Please do not attend if you have any Covid-19 symptoms.  Ensure you wash or sanitise your hands at regular intervals.
