Manchester is soon to be the UK's fastest growing city outside of London, boasting many of the same advantages as the capital but with much lower costs. Indeed, the average office space cost in Manchester is £4,500 a year per employee – around half the London average.
Since the BBC began to move large sections of its workforce to Manchester in 2010, the city has been on an upward trajectory. The BBC move inspired a burgeoning creative and technical industry to come out of its shell, teasing out Manchester's strong cultural roots. Equally, the city is not short of major business players. Adidas has its UK headquarters in Manchester, and the city also hosts regional bases for such names as Siemens, AstraZeneca, KPMG, Deloitte and Google. Clearly, choosing a Manchester serviced office space puts you in good company.
The benefits don't stop at famous names either. Manchester Airport is the UK's third-busiest by passenger volume, with three terminals serving every corner of the globe. The city also has an efficient rail, bus and tram network, with easy and cheap access to London, as well as northern neighbours: Liverpool, Leeds and Sheffield, ensuring that your business can stay connected and in the loop without shouldering the costs of renting in the capital. Manchester is also set to benefit from superfast access to London once HS2 in completed; this will see prices spike in the city in a few years' time, so establishing a base there now would be a shrewd move.
