Full description

Tenure: Leasehold


Harwell Campus is situated in a beautiful environment in South Oxfordshire just 15 miles from the centre of Oxford and 6 miles from Didcot Parkway Railway Station.

There is direct access onto the A34 with improved access for Northbound traffic currently under construction. The A34 also links with the M4, M40, and M3 motorways for easy travel to London, Heathrow, Midlands and the South West.

Western Rail Access to Heathrow begins in 2017 and will mean a 40 minute travel time to Heathrow T5 via Didcot Parkway. Cross Rail (2018/19) will enable a journey time from London Paddington to Bond Street in 2 minutes and Liverpool Street in 10 minutes.

The railway line to Didcot Parkway is currently undergoing electrification works which will reduce journey times to a host of central London underground stations to less than an hour.

The campus is well served by public buses including a shuttle operating between Didcot Parkway and the Campus every 15 minutes throughout the day.
