8 Reasons to Work in Birmingham Business Park
Birmingham Business Park isn’t your average corporate environment. For starters, it’s home to more birds, bees, ducks and geese than businesses, who have made their homes here amongst the trees and lakes. But that’s not to say people don’t have a place here - far from it!
Birmingham Business Park is a lifestyle-focused environment with community at its heart, which means on any day of the week you could be enjoying great local food, trying a new fitness class, enjoying a nature walk or tucking into a lakeside picnic. Here, we take a dip into Birmingham Business Park and discover why it’s such a great place to do business:
Road, rail, or air?
It’s close to Junction 6 of the M42 and just a few minutes from the M42/M6 interchange, which means it’s incredibly accessible. Birmingham International Airport is a 2-mile drive away as is Birmingham International Train Station, which offers quick direct links to Birmingham, Coventry, London, and many other major UK cities. You can car-share with other drivers and passengers via the Birmingham Green Hub Liftshare scheme, or if you’re a local resident, why not simply ‘Walk It’? Click here to plan your route.
Great shops and facilities on your doorstep.
Take a short stroll around the lake and you’ll find yourself at Pan E Caffe, a popular on-site cafe offering freshly baked baguettes, ciabattas, toasted sandwiches, fresh soup and hot jacket potatoes, not to mention tasty treats, lighter bites and of course, excellent coffee. There’s also a handy newsagent nearby - perfect for office supplies and last-minute birthday cards!
Retail therapy is within easy reach.
From a full evening’s Christmas shopping to a last-minute Friday night outfit, all your prayers are answered at Touchwood.
