Award-Winning Sensory Room: A Look Inside

By: Watford FC Staff

Fresh from gaining national recognition at TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Awards 2018, take a closer look at the invaluable work undertaken at Watford’s pioneering Sensory Room.

The room – which celebrated its second anniversary last month – won the Interior and Fit-Out prize at the prestigious awards in late 2018 and was described by judges as ‘an example for all professional sports clubs to follow’.

Kitted out with a state-of-the-art calming area and offering an excellent view of the match action, all from a comfortable and accessible viewing location, the Sensory Room continues to positively impact autistic children who would otherwise struggle to cope in the noisy environment of a football stadium.

Watch the video above to take a look inside, and to hear from some of those who work there on matchdays.

Interested in trying the Sensory Room? Email Chris Hall, the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer, at for details.

Places are subject to availability and a letter from a doctor/consultant or other healthcare professional may be required when booking. Parents will also have the option to visit the room before matchday, if they wish to check its suitability.
