Life at Harwell

Companies thrive when their people do. Harwell is designed to bring out the best in your teams, whether you’re a two-person start-up or a FTSE-listed multinational. Our campus combines beautiful countryside with city-level facilities, including on-site food and drink and numerous sports clubs, covering rugby to archery. The facilities are set to expand too, with cutting-edge conference spaces, a new hotel, and contemporary homes in our residential quarter all due to open soon.


Harwell is located in beautiful countryside just south of Oxford, one of the fastest growing cities in the UK.

Oxford city centre is just over 20 minutes, drive away, Heathrow is 55 minutes by road, and nearby Didcot Parkway station connects you to London Paddington in just 42 minutes. The launch of Crossrail and the upgrade to the Didcot Parkway Line mean it will soon be possible to reach central London Underground stations in under one hour.

There is a shuttlebus service through the day to Didcot Parkway and Oxford.
