Relax and Connect With Nature in One of Our 8 Gardens!
01. Penn Square
A formal landscaped garden with pleached trees that divide the space into a series of ‘rooms’. Central to this garden is a striking tree sculpture, representing life, growth and laying down roots.
02. Dickinson Mews
Dickinson Mews is a second formal garden with structured planting that includes feature trees and topiary hedges.
03. Dickinson Mews Square
A cascading staircase of water tumbles through this garden, while a sculpture in the shape of a folded paper plane draws on Watford’s printing and paper heritage. Feature paving and lighting surround the sculpture, and Ginko trees add colour to the scene.
04. Dickinson Mews Gardens
This garden features informal landscaping for a more relaxed feel, with lawns and softer planting. A third sculpture, ‘Waterways’, in the shape of a boat, sits within the lawn and forms part of a play area for children.
05. The Podium Garden
Located at second floor level, the Podium Garden is for residents only and offers a sheltered retreat from Watford’s bustling streets. It features a pergola with climbing plants growing around it, swathes of green lawn, raised planters with colourful bursts of flora, and a variety of different trees.
06. The Roof Garden
There are four roof gardens on top of the apartment buildings, offering a completely private area for residents. Planting and seating provide a place to relax and enjoy the views, while allotments are available for residents to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
07. Fauna Walk
This garden embraces ecology, with diverse natural planting and a dry pond to encourage insects, small mammals and bird life. Planted arches, patterned paving and animal sculptures evoke a sense of playfulness, while sensory lighting and fragranced planting create an experience for the senses.
08. Northern Mews
A green open area designed for play and recreation, with space for children to let their imagination run free.

Bringing Art to The Eight Gardens
The outdoor space at The Eight Gardens has been beautifully designed to create areas where residents can relax, feel inspired and connect with the landscape. Art and sculpture form focal points, while beautiful planting and landscaping features provide interest for all the senses.
The four garden areas each have their own distinctive identity, united by the theme of papercraft, which reflects Watford’s industrial heritage.
Penn Square Life & Growth
At the heart of Penn Square is a sculptural, multifaceted tree inspired by an ancient cedar tree in Watford’s Cassiobury Park. This contemporary interpretation is made up of origami forms creating a canopy which will allow light to dapple through onto the ground below. Capturing the idea of a new community growing at the heart of The Eight Gardens, a place to lay down roots, it offers strength, security and stability.
Dickenson Mews -Wings
Mews Square celebrates the history of aviation in the area. Leavesden film studios was once the site of Leavesden Aerodrome, where fighter and bomber aircraft were manufactured during World War II. The sculpture here uses the form of a paper plane to reflect this heritage, with lighting reminiscent of a flight path to add to the effect.
Dickson Mews Gardens - Waterways
Watford’s Grand Junction Canal played an important role in the development of industry, transporting coal and connecting the growing economies of Birmingham, the Midlands and the North of England to London. The canal boat sculpture is embedded into the ground, creating the sense that it is in the water, and making it more accessible for play and interaction.
Fauna Walk - Natural Heritage
Fauna Walk celebrates Watford’s wildlife with a series of sculptures located throughout this woodland inspired landscape. Different sculptural animal forms are encountered throughout the walk, bringing the wildlife of Watford’s forests and parks to The Eight Gardens, and reminding residents of the nature around them.

Warner Bros Studio and Harry Potter Tour
Leavesden Studios has made history a number of times, a previous World War II aerodrome site, a Rolls Royce manufacturing site and since 1992 a major studio where many of the world’s ground-breaking films have been created.
Leavesden Studios has brought us classics including James Bond, Goldeneye (1994) and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999) and fan favourites such as Paddington (2014), Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015), Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (2015) and Spider Man: Far from Home (2019). However, the studio is most noticeably famous for the creation of all eight Harry Potter Films and the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
The Making of Harry Potter at the Warner Bros. Studio in Leavesden, Watford is a leading attraction in the South East with 6,000 visitors a day during peak times. This remarkable tour takes you through the world of Hogwarts and Harry Potter, revealing many of the film’s secrets and giving you access to a magical array of sets and props.
