Why choose offices in Barnsley?
Located in South Yorkshire, Barnsley is ideally situated within easy access of the M1 motorway, which connects London to Leeds and is where you’ll find a number of business parks that have expanded job opportunities in the area.
Meanwhile strong rail links connect Barnsley to other big business hubs. For example, there is a half-hourly express service to Leeds, which takes around 35 minutes, and an hourly service to Huddersfield.
The main transport hub, Barnsley Interchange, is a combined rail and bus station which opened in 2007 - the first project in the Rethinking Barnsley scheme to be completed. This ongoing regeneration programme also includes the development of a digital media centre, new offices and apartments.
Barnsley is notable as a former industrial town. However, it is now moving towards a service economy. The development of a new shopping centre was started in late 2015 and the town is now packed full of independent shops, high street stores and is home to one of the best markets in South Yorkshire.
If you’re looking to set up a new business or relocate in Barnsley there is a wide range of support available via the economic development arm of Barnsley Council, known as Enterprising Barnsley.
And just a little added bonus for those looking to get away from work for a bit, there are some enchanting outdoor areas, as Barnsley is ideally located on the border of the Peak District.
Office space options in Barnsley
Many businesses looking for space still tend to opt for cheap, unfurnished premises for rent on a long-term contract. This is still a viable option and we should often have these available to rent in Barnsley, but there are other more flexible lease options for office-seekers!
For example, you could go for a serviced office, which gives you the space you need while eliminating responsibility for maintenance and services. In addition, we could also offer simple deskspace rentals, where you can just rent the desks you need in a shared office.
So, you can now delve right into our Barnsley listings! Remember that we add to our stock all the time so there are always new offices available, and feel free to call our helpline if you need some expert guidance.
