It has a vibrant, diverse community and there are many events that showcase the lively and active atmosphere.

Three Rivers is also one of the safest districts in Hertfordshire, with the county itself one of the safest in the UK.
Our Green Belt covers nearly 9,000 hectares and we manage 260 hectares of public woodland and 21 conservation areas in the district. This demonstrates the amount of open space and places of historical interest in Three Rivers. This district is home to the world famous Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, which allows visitors to relive the magic of the Harry Potter film series. Visitors can also tee up at one of Three River’s eight fantastic golf courses, including The Grove resort and spa which offers luxurious accommodation.
You can get out and about in Three Rivers’ beautiful open spaces like Rickmansworth Aquadrome, Chorleywood Common, Leavesden Country Park, Croxley Common Moor, Oxhey Wood Sculpture Trail, Beechen Wood and Franklin Spring Woods. The area has a diverse range of sectors and businesses, home to both the head offices of national and international organisations and vibrant small firms. It is the base for national names such as British Telecom, Camelot, Nestle, Renewable Energy Systems, Imagination Technologies, Warner Bros, Skanska, Clancy Docwra, Smith & Nephew, Nissan and Renault. One of the main aims for the District Council is to help people find the support they need to set up in business and markets or to expand existing enterprises and the Council has helped establish Rivertech in Rickmansworth as a hub for new and small businesses.
Communications are very good with road and rail links, including the M1, M25, the West Coast Main Line, Chiltern and the Metropolitan Tube Lines. In addition, the planned Croxley Link will provide direct links to central Watford and Watford Junction station, which is connected to the West Coast Main Line. You are 30 minutes away from the nearest airports, Heathrow and Luton, by car. Gatwick is an hour away by car. The Council’s priority is to improve the quality of life for the people of Three Rivers by working in partnership to create a district which is safe, healthy, and prosperous, and which is where people want and are able to live, work and visit.
Fantastic golf, rolling countryside, and even a touch of magic – Three Rivers has it all!
