The lakes are old gravel quarries filled with water and stocked with fish but only Batchworth Lake is available for fishing. Some gravel from the site was used to build Wembley Stadium in 1923. Batchworth Lake is popular for water skiing events and hosts the Rickmansworth Water Ski Club. Bury Lake is home to BLYM, a sailing club and RYA-recognised teaching establishment.

There are two tracks through the station, shared in both directions by London Underground and National Rail trains. A third old and unused platform (from the steam days) is still in place. This platform also served shuttle trains running to and from Watford through the West curve and Croxley.

Rickmansworth grew dramatically during the Victorian era and in the 1920s and 1930s as part of Metro-land, due to the extension of Metropolitan Railway, and became a commuter town.

Cardinal Wolsey, in his capacity as Abbot of St Albans, held the Manor of le More in the valley. The manor house was replaced by the hill-top mansion Moor Park, which eventually became the residence of Admiral Lord Anson, who commissioned Capability Brown to remake the formal gardens, and in 1828 of the Barons Ebury; it is now the Golf Club House. The wider area, including Croxley Green, Moor Park, Batchworth, Mill End, West Hyde and Chorleywood, formed the original parish of Rickmansworth.

On the meat counter, there are prime cuts of free range pork, Aberdeen Angus beef and Farmhouse lamb, as well as specialities such as rack of lamb.

On the National Rail network, the station is served by Chiltern Railways trains between Marylebone and Aylesbury whose next stopping points in each direction are Chorleywood and Harrow-on-the-Hill stations. However, during peak time, Chiltern trains do not stop at Rickmansworth as a result of the short platforms making it unsafe to board or alight from 6 car or longer trains.

However, Rickmansworth is still the changeover point for drivers on the Metropolitan line. The majority of LU trains heading north to Amersham are timetabled to stop at Rickmansworth for about five minutes to change train staff. It is also the headquarters of the operational side of the northern section of the Met: It controls signals on the line from Northwood in the south to Watford/Chorleywood in the north and is one of the few locations on the Met where train drivers are based.

Rickmansworth is a London Underground (LU) station in the town of Rickmansworth, in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire to the north-west of London. It is served by the LU Metropolitan line and by Chiltern Railways. It is one of the few stations beyond Greater London served by the London Underground, and as a consequence is in Travelcard Zone 7, previously Zone A.

A long-running dispute over water levels in the Batchford area, following construction of the Grand Junction Canal, was resolved in 1825, when an 8.2-foot (2.5 m) obelisk was erected in a pond, to act as a water gauge. It records the agreement made between the canal company, John Dickinson the miller at Batchworth Mill, and R. Williams of Moor Park the landowner.[5]

The Aquadrome covers 41 hectares (100 acres) and includes the Aquadrome Local Nature Reserve, Batchworth and Bury Lakes, open grassland, areas of woodland, car parking and a children's play area. Its boundaries are the River Colne to the north, the Grand Union Canal to the east and south and Stocker's Lake to the west. In July 2009, it received a Green Flag Award for parks and open spaces which meet high standards. A café opened earlier the same year.

There was a settlement in this part of the Colne valley in the Stone age. Rickmansworth was one of five manors with which the great Abbey of St Albans had been endowed when founded in 793 by King Offa. Local tithes supported the abbey, which provided clergy to serve the people until the dissolution of the monasteries in 1539. Around the time of the Domesday Book, the population of "Prichemareworth" may have been about 200.
