The historic city of Oxford is situated in the South East with a population of around 151,000. The city itself is compact with much of the city’s shops, museums, Universities in fact pretty much everything is within a 3 mile radius of the centre.
Much of Oxford’s serviced office space is located close to the four main streets which meet to form the centre of Oxford – Cornmarket Street, Queen Street, High Street and St Aldates. The two main exceptions are the Oxford Business Park and the Oxford Science park which are situated in Cowley and Littlemore respectively.
Space to for new developments is extremely limited due to the historic nature of many of the buildings and the compact nature of the city.
