I go regulaly to Vicarage road to watch the Saracens Rugby.
I go mainly in the south stand and the facilities are good compared with other stadia. Its only downfall is the cold hotdogs. I can however vouch for the quality of the pies. Your best option in eating is buy fish and chips from the chippy on Vicarage road and take it in with you.
The least glamorous sporting ground I’ve ever been to. The atmosphere was a bit off, especially considering it was a sell-out Heineken quarter-final match.
Saracens fans were very unsporting, booing the opposition team when they ran out. I think that’s terribly bad form. They also booed when the opposition were attempting place kicks. That kind of stuff really sours a match for me. Additionally they would play music when Saracens scored, but not when the other team did.
The stadium itself is in the middle of a housing estate in Watford. It’s in a really shabby state and staff are not especially friendly. A good ten/fifteen minute walk from the Met line station (which appears to be in the middle of nowhere when you first exit). I didn’t see any of the ATMs, newsagents or chip shops that Jamie Parkins talks about.
Certainly not an essential visit unless you are a Watford or Saracens fan.
I may well be biased but Vicarage Road is my favourite place at 3pm on a Saturday.
As football grounds go, Vicarage Road remains of the old school. No modern day flat pack Ikea style stands here thank you very much. That said, 3 of the stands are of modern build but still over 10 years old each whilst the East Stand somewhat stands out as a shabby, but delightful, stand in need of some love and some care.
Capacity is around 21,000 and for the start of the 07/08 season some of the rough edges around the ground have been tidied. The toilets (mens and womens) have been upgraded, the concourses are now wider and cleaner and TVs have been installed so you can keep abreast of the game even when ordering a pint.
Access to and from the ground for away fans is easy, but the majority of home fans leaving The Rookery terrace do have to struggle up Occupation Road, a thin and slow moving walkway.
The ground is 5 minutes walk from the town centre and a further 10 minutes walk from Watford Junction train station. All in all very easy.
There are few ATM machines on the way to the ground but plenty of newsagents, fish and chip shops etc.
The Red Lion pub opposite the away end is perversely enough a "home fans only" drinking hole and tends to be used by regulars only. I'd suggest any of the pubs nearer to the town centre.
