Thinking about moving your business to High Wycombe? The vicinity to London and continuous town developments make it an ideal choice.
High Wycombe (often referred to as simply ‘Wycombe’) is the second largest town in Buckinghamshire, with excellent travel links to London and the surrounding areas. Set amongst the picturesque Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, the town is perfectly placed for both business and leisure activities and could be just the location your new or existing business needs.
The town centre underwent major redevelopment in the 1960s, when new shopping centres and office buildings were created. This was followed by out-of-town retail parks and new housing estates.
Further development is scheduled to take place over the next few years, with plans already in place to further enhance and improve current public spaces. The eventual ambition is to connect the old town with its newer developments, improving both the facilities and the aesthetic appearance of the area.
Commercial property in High Wycombe is highly regarded and always in great demand. Business and industrial parks play host to a multitude of companies all reaping the benefits of the town’s prime location, extensive local workforce and first class facilities.
Anyone seeking to locate a business or open a new office in High Wycombe will appreciate not only the outstanding location, but also the excellent transport links. The town is situated very close to the M40 motorway, with two junctions serving the town, and central London only around 30 miles away; the M25 and M4 motorways are also within easy reach. Local bus services link the town centre with outlying business and industrial parks and nearby housing developments.
The town’s railway station is on the Chiltern Main Line linking London and Birmingham, thus providing excellent access for commuters to and between England’s two largest cities. Recent line upgrading has enabled faster and more efficient train services and it is now possible to reach London Marylebone in a little over 20 minutes on certain fast services.
Airport links are also well catered for, with Europe’s busiest airport, Heathrow, only 20 miles away from High Wycombe, and with London’s other airports also within easy reach..
Demand is extremely high for office and industrial units in the region, even in the current uncertain economic climate. Traditional industries associated with High Wycombe include furniture making and printing. Indeed, printing and paper production is still an important local industry along with office furniture design and manufacture.
Retail businesses will find opportunities within both the town centre and the out-of-town retail park.
