Based in the Oxfordshire countryside, Harwell Campus is global in its outlook and in its reach.

Harwell is in the UK’s Golden Triangle and located in Science Vale UK, a UK Enterprise Zone. With quick, easy access to Oxford, London, Bristol and Heathrow airport, Harwell is well-connected for business, and the area offers a high quality of life and an international community.

Oxfordshire is an ideal place to land, with commercial rental costs significantly lower than alternatives including London, Cambridge and Reading. At the southern tip of Oxfordshire’s ‘Knowledge Spine’, close to the Thames Valley Corridor and Heathrow Airport, Harwell is prioritised for growth by the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
