Often described as ‘the best bits of London, all in a ten-minute walk’, Royal Leamington Spa is an attractive Regency town with wide boulevards and stunning architecture, located in the heart of Warwickshire. Offices Leamington Spa offer a picturesque, rural setting, yet with easy access to the commercial centres of the country and beyond.
Warwickshire office space is popular with a variety of occupiers that have international, national and regional concerns and operations – due to its central UK location and proximity to an array of transport links including train stations, Birmingham Airport, and the national motorway network. Leamington Spa’s own train station gives direct access to London Marylebone and Birmingham’s Moor Street and Snowhill stations.
Warwickshire’s commercial hotspots – Leamington Spa, Coventry and Warwick – are home to a variety of industries with notable clusters of companies in the automotive and aerospace sectors.
Since 2008, Leamington has had an established Business Improvement District (BID) funded by the businesses in the area. Having seen its 5-year term renewed twice, BID Leamington has been seen to make substantial progress on its objectives which are as follows:
- Finance – invest with efficiency and transparency, and generate a measurable return on investment
- Promote – attract visitors and neighbours, and retain local customers
- Enhance – provide a welcoming, interesting environment while building loyalty and fostering community spirit
- Support – deliver business support and efficiency savings
- Partnerships – work with BID partners to achieve added value
In recent years, with help from its BID, Leamington Spa has earned the name ‘Silicon Spa’, as it has become an epicentre for the West Midlands’ growing computer games industry. Many of the best-known games titles in the world were created by a cluster of 2,500 games developers in over 50 companies that operate in the gaming sector in and around Leamington Spa. The distinctive heritage and culture of ‘Silicon Spa’ has developed over more than two decades through a focus on quality and creativity.
Leamington Spa town is set to see substantial investment and rejuvenation. The council, working in association with Public Sector plc, has planned a £50 million program of redevelopment, which will see the construction of a new council building – bringing all services and 350 jobs into the town centre – a multi-storey car park, and 40 private apartments in the Covent Garden area of central Leamington Spa.
KWB offers rare opportunities for high-quality new build offices Leamington Spa. An ‘oven ready’ pre-let office opportunity at Abbey Park provides a level of flexibility as to the final specification of the offices – ideal for larger occupiers making substantial commitments in square footage and length of lease.
