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.

The Eight Gardens - Penn Square Life & Growth

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.

The Eight Gardens - Dickenson Mews - Wings

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.

The Eight Gardens - Dickenson Mews - Waterways

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. 

The Eight Gardens - Fauna Walk - Natural Heritage

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.
