Stevenage is a great location for your investment needs, whether you are looking for commercial sites for businesses, retail opportunities, residential schemes or something else.

The ideal location

In green and prosperous north Hertfordshire, around 30 miles north of London, Stevenage is ideally located on the A1(M) and the East Coast Main Line. It benefits from direct and convenient transport links to London, Cambridge and the north with train services reaching London in around 19 minutes. It is less than 15 miles from London Luton Airport and within an hour of Heathrow and Stansted airports.

Commercial opportunity

Stevenage plays host to a range of international high-tech and knowledge based industries, and is home to Hertfordshire’s largest employment area at Gunnels Wood. At the heart of this sector is the recently completed Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst, the UK’s first open innovation bioscience campus. The Bioscience Catalyst provides unrivalled incubation facilities for the progression of frontier research, all in an open innovation environment, which offers the unique opportunity to collaborate extensively with universities, charities, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies within an established network.

A place to buy a home

Stevenage offers an affordable housing market. The average house price is under half of what is experienced in London. Stevenage provides an attractive location to live, with large areas of open space, a cycle network that rivals those of European towns and new investment in schools, academies and colleges.
