An office rental guide to The Royal County of Berkshire by Abbey Business Centres

12/10/2009

Located just to the West of London, and with a population of around 812,000, Berkshire can be divided into two distinctive areas – the predominantly urban East and the sparsely populated West. The proximity of the county to London makes the region an attractive place to do business.

Reading, the administrative capital of Berkshire is home to a highly skilled workforce with a relatively high level of disposable income. Other conurbations of note in the county include Slough, Maidenhead, Newbury, Hungerford, Windsor, Bracknell and Wokingham.

As you would expect, Berkshire has a substantial transport network in operation to meet ever rising population numbers across the region. The M4 motorway runs straight through the heart of the county providing a direct link for motorists to London, Wales and the South-West whilst the A34 trunk road connects you to Oxford and the South Coast. For those without a car, First Great Western operates high speed train services across the county from their London terminus at Paddington.

Berkshire is also a popular tourist destination for those visiting the South-East of England. Attractions include Windsor Castle, Eton College and Legoland Windsor whilst for those sporty types, Ascot and Newbury Racecourses, as well as the Madejski Stadium, provide the main must see amenities.

With these factors considered, it comes as no surprise that a number of the world’s leading brands have chosen Berkshire as their home. Vodafone have their global headquarters in Newbury, employing around 6,000 local people, whilst finance giant ING Direct run their worldwide operations from office space in Reading. Other notable organisations with a presence in the county include O2, Yell and KPMG.

You too can join this list of leading brands with the help of Abbey Business Centres. Our business centres in Slough and Theale offer high specification serviced office space for those companies seeking a presence in the county.

Each centre benefits from the excellent transport links mentioned above and have a number of on-site meeting rooms that can be hired on an hourly basis. Additionally you will also benefit from the presence of a front of house reception team that will answer all your telephone calls and handle your mail requirements.

It won’t cost you the earth either. Our prices start from as little as £200 per workstation per month – that’s a saving of £500 per month when compared to taking similar office space in Central London!
