Slough is located in Berkshire and lies around 20 miles west of Central London. In recent years Slough has seen a major redevelopment of its town centre with many of the original buildings being replaced by new office buildings and shopping complexes. In addition to this redevelopment, there are also plans to focus efforts on making the town centre a cultural quarter for information and communications industries, as well as creative media companies. Aside from the vast variety of businesses with a presence in Slough, the area is also home to a number of shopping centres, restaurants and show venues which provide an eclectic mix of entertainment for workers, residents and tourists.
Setting up your business here
Brickfields and agriculture were the main businesses in Slough before the 19th century; however, in the last 20 years there has been a major shift in the primary industries from manufacturing to information based companies. Due to this, many of the factories have now closed, giving way to a variety of office buildings which are now home to hundreds of major companies including Honda, O2 and Lonza which will undoubtedly provide excellent networking opportunities. The business appeal of this area may be due to the high number of ICT and technology specialists in the area as well as the excellent accessibility due to the area’s close proximity to Heathrow airport and excellent motorway connections. Public transportation in and around Slough is also abundant, with a number of railway stations and bus routes providing links between central London and the local area. Slough railway station has also recently undergone regeneration to improve disabled access which will greatly benefit the area.
