Why rent Surrey offices?
Surrey is said to have the highest concentration of millionaires in the country and a skilled workforce, especially working in areas like financial services.
You’ll find more company headquarters here than anywhere else in the UK – including multinationals like Unilever, Nestle and Esso. That’s partly because Surrey is within easy reach of both London and the rest of the South East, with journey times within the average UK commuting time. Hollywood likes Surrey too – Surrey woodland has stood in for Roman-era Germany in the film Gladiator and mythical world Vanaheim in Thor: The Dark World.
Transport links are plentiful – there are rail links to and from London Waterloo serving the south coast and the South West, and to the east of the county, lines run into London Bridge or London Victoria. Three motorways serve Surrey – the M25, M3 and M23 – and there are numerous A-roads.
All this does mean that Surrey is busy and can get congested. Its rail routes are also heavily used. But Surrey County Council is keen to help businesses and support for local businesses is a big part of the council’s corporate strategy for the next few years. It offers a range of help, from partnership schemes to advice and business networking events.
Surrey Chambers of Commerce is the county’s largest independent not-for-profit business support and networking organisation, with its own dedicated helpline and plenty of networking and other events.
This welcoming environment is reflected in a consistently high rate of business start-ups and smaller companies make up the bulk of Surrey’s 60,000-plus firms. And companies that decide to set up here can choose from a range of locations from busy, larger towns such as Guildford and Woking to smaller, more picturesque market towns and villages, with offices in anything from a brand new high-tech business centre to a Georgian townhouse, a rural executive office overlooking fields or even a Grade II-listed mansion.
Office space options in Surrey
With the latest in contemporary design and facilities available in serviced office space, complete with meeting rooms, virtual offices, gyms and café facilities, it’s easy for smaller companies to promote a prestigious company image, thanks to short-term, flexible lease arrangements. You’ll also find offices for rent in period buildings – and even listed mansions in acres of grounds to impress clients.
And with the whole county to choose from, there’s bound to be an office to rent within your budget. The cheap option tends to be a long traditional lease – ideal if you already have infrastructure such as office/kitchen furniture, support staff etc. Or how about shared office space, where you rent serviced-style space from a company that has some spare desks in their offices?
