Garston is a village in Hertfordshire, England.[1][2] Garston is contiguous with Watford and now, despite retaining a local identity, is effectively a suburb. It is within the Stanborough, Woodside and Meriden wards of the borough of Watford, although a small number of its streets are in Hertsmere.

The Building Research Establishment (BRE) has its headquarters within Garston.

Transport[edit]

Garston has its own railway station, served by trains on the Abbey Line, which links Watford with St Albans. Most buses in the area are run by Arriva.[citation needed]
