Location

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.

The Campus

Harwell Campus comprises 710 acres and is home to over 5,000 people working in more than 200 organisations. The campus is becoming one of the world's largest and most important science and innovation locations.

Harwell is host to an array of over £1bn of world-leading research infrastructure and occupiers have access to 'big science' facilities as well as an exceptional talent pool of researchers and experts. Harwell welcomes organisations from a broad array of sectors, including:

  • Space and Satellite Applications
  • Life Sciences and Healthcare
  • Big Data and Supercomputing
  • Energy and Environment
  • Roller shutter doors
  • Advanced Engineering and Materials

Harwell Campus is a designated enterprise zone and as such offers growing companies significant business rates discounts.
