What does Swindon have to offer?


We are across the road from the train station so fantastic transport links – only 40 mins from London and 25 mins to Bristol. Within 15 mins we can be on the M4 and the bus station is adjacent to the building. Being in a central location is a great benefit to commuters and clients coming to visit Swindon.

On our ground floor we have some great areas for people to work from when perhaps they might be waiting for a meeting or a train. It’s a great spot to pop in and concentrate on getting some work done!

Views from the upper floors are amazing across Swindon centre from all sides, if you can get a window office it would be a fabulous working environment.
