An excellent location

The town is within an hour’s drive from London and near to the south coast cities of Portsmouth, Southampton and Chichester – as well as just half an hour from Guildford with easy access to the A3 (which connects Portsmouth and London).

It is ideally located between major business centres and commercial markets – which are connected by the A3, A31 and M3 road network. The town is also a gateway to the beautiful South Downs National Park which stretches from Winchester to Eastbourne.

These combined factors make it an ideal place to set up or expand your business.
