Moving to Eastleigh? Dowds Farm Estate

If you are moving, or thinking about moving your business to Eastleigh, we can help.    

Eastleigh is fast becoming recognised as the place in the Solent region for businesses to start-up and grow.

Great transport links, a skilled labour force, access to flexible accommodation on easy terms, affordable training, business advice and networking and strong links to local universities have made Eastleigh a great choice for people with a new business idea or looking to expand.

We are focussed on providing small business owners with the services, advice and support they need for success – recognising the particular needs of newly-formed companies.

Well connected
Eastleigh is incredibly well connected with the M3 and M27 running right through the Borough and fast, direct train links to London, the Midlands and the North. Southampton Airport is on the doorstep with flights to over 40 UK and European destinations.

There’s a great choice of business premises in Eastleigh town centre within just a few minutes of the mainline train and bus stations and over forty business parks and industrial estates across the Borough with plenty of parking and easy access to the motorway network.

Eastleigh is well connected digitally with high-speed broadband throughout the Borough and purpose-built offices and studios for creative and digital industries.

The right business premises
There’s an extensive choice of competitively priced business premises in Eastleigh from premium office space and business start-up accommodation to small industrial units and 10,000 sq ft warehouses.

We recognise that new businesses often can’t afford to be tied to a long-term lease and need the opportunity to flex their office space as their business takes off.  That’s why we’ve developed Wessex House, Eastleigh’s Business Centre which provides flexible accommodation including office furniture, broadband, meeting rooms and reception services all for one monthly fee, without the commitment of a long-term lease.    

Links to local universities
Eastleigh has excellent links with a network of leading South of England universities, which actively support entrepreneurship, business incubation and business growth. There’s a thriving graduate employment base, particularly in scientific, creative and digital industries. All the universities offer advice, support and networking opportunities for new or growing businesses.
