This is a forum where differing opinions should normally be allowed to be posted. 'Great' compared to what? Like all major towns Watford has evolved as per the changing needs of the local inhabitants. I prefer to live in the countryside but Watford is a pleasant place to visit for shopping, football, restaurants, pubs etc etc. I always find the traffic flows well even on football days. I will be leaving soon to visit our favourite restaurant for breakfast, maybe a pint in the Red Lion then on to my excellent seats to watch the Horns. I can see why Watford is such a sought after location to live.
