Office space in Essex
Essex is a county with a great number of options for office rental. Ideally situated to the east of London, the area offers prime-location commercial property within touching distance of the capital, yet far enough away for you to generally avoid the higher prices. If you are looking to rent office space in Essex (and frankly why wouldn’t you be?) then you’re in the right place. On this very page you’ll find our property listings for the county, so please dive right in.
Why rent offices in Essex?
One of Essex’s major selling points is indeed its proximity to the capital. The heart of London’s key business districts are less than 30 minutes away from most parts of the county. Cambridge, a further business hotspot, is also within touching distance. Factor in lower property prices (generally 40% below London) and wages (30% lower than London wages) and you’ve got a hugely appealing prospect.
It’s not all about the cost-effective options, Essex is a hugely appealing destination for a number of reasons. It boasts attractive destinations in the shape of county town Chelmsford and Colchester respectively. The area also boasts high GDP and is one of the top three locations in the country for R&D. Factor in an attractive coastline, charming villages and famously lively nightlife, and there can be little doubt about Essex’s status as a work-hard, play-hard business location - one with a hell of a lot going for it.
As you’d expect, transport links to London are excellent. Major locations such as Chelmsford and Colchester offer fast, direct rail connections to the capital. The presence of the A12 also makes road travel into the city a particularly convenient option for businesses and residents.
In Stansted Airport and Harwich International port, you also have two major gateways to Europe and indeed the world. If you’re an international business then it really makes sense to locate in the Essex area.
