Office space in Oldham
Welcome to our Office Genie guide to rental in Oldham, a large town in Greater Manchester. Situated in the Pennines, elevated between the River Irk and Medlock, Oldham has plenty of retail and cultural facilities alongside the opportunity of affordable office spaces to rent close to one of the UK’s most important business centres.
Why rent Oldham offices?
Oldham became an important town during the Industrial Revolution and the vast array of textile and cotton mills that followed. The old cotton factories are still standing today, but the town has since become a hub of education and the performing arts, with a Grade II listed town hall and a yearly Carnival that unites the community and local traders. In the town centre you’ll find a developing business district and several other retail hotspots, such Oldham Gallery, The Spindles street market and Tommyfield Market.
In recent years Oldham has benefitted from the introduction of four Metrolink stations, providing services every 12 minutes between Rochdale and Manchester city centre. Key connections include Trafford Shopping Centre and local market connections for nearby Bury and Ashton.
If you’d prefer to drive, you’ll be less than 15 minutes from the A62 (known often as the Failsworth Road or Manchester Inner Ring Road) which crosses the Pennines to connect you to West Yorkshire. Parallel, the M62 motorway runs between Manchester, Leeds and its surrounding locations.
Oldham’s local borough council offers your business several helpful services, including advice, early payment schemes, networking; and the opportunity to apply for a £3,000 grant.
Office space options in Oldham
Those just starting out would make good use of a cheap, flexible desk in a shared office where you can network and expand at your own pace.
A fully serviced, well equipped office space can be a great idea for those looking to focus on their business growth (rather than building maintenance or issues) – but this option isn’t cheap. We also have a range of unfurnished, long lease offices available for those looking to relocate permanently or make a longer term move; and who are happy to save money while taking more control of their office environment. Finally we have shared office space too – great for freelancers and startups happy to share their office space with another company.
Please do check back often as we update our stocks regularly. You can also try a quick search for the nearby areas of Ashton under Lyne, Rochester and Manchester for some suitable alternatives.
