As England’s most heavily populated seaside resort, Brighton has a lot to offer businesses looking to settle in a dynamic and lively business environment and as a result there has been an increased number of companies considering a relocation to Brighton. As one of the UK’s most culturally refined cities with easy access to both London and Portsmouth as well as being near to ferry links across the Channel, a Brighton relocation could provide a company with an ideal business setting. Sometimes referred to as ‘Silicon Beach’ because of its high density of digital media businesses, relocating to Brighton would place a company in a developed professional community.
Since the 1990s, Brighton has experienced an influx of digital media companies, developing the city’s reputation as a commercially strong environment and in turn attracting businesses from varying industries. The international IT service group FDM was founded in Brighton, from there the business has grown substantially to have offices across Europe, North America and Asia, whilst continuing to use Brighton as the headquarters. In 2008, American Express announced that they were to open their nine story European Service Centre in Brighton, recognising that the city’s vastly growing reputation offered the chance to support an international business.
Brighton has a healthy choice of schooling to choose from for staff relocating with family. The city is home to excellent state schools such as The Priory and Dorothy Stringer High School as well as some of the UK’s top performing independent schools including Brighton College and Brighton and Hove High, meaning that no matter which school a child attends they are sure to receive good tuition. The city is also extremely accessible, trains from Brighton to London take less than an hour and Brighton is served by the nearby Shoreham Airport as well as being within striking distance of London Gatwick, meaning that companies operating on an international scale would be well accommodated in this coastal city.
Employees relocating to Brighton are spoilt for choice when it comes to residential areas and deciding whether they would prefer to be in spacious villages, central townhouses, by the sea or further inland could be difficult. The Hove area is extremely desirable, with Victorian and Georgian townhouses within walking distance from the beach, whilst areas such as Goldstone and Withdean offer more peaceful village settings further away from the coast and if the mixture of space, tranquillity and the seaside is required, delightful villages such as Rottingdean and Ovingdean would be perfect.
Brighton’s status as a commercially structured city has been building over the past few decades and it certainly has proven that it can support businesses from any sector.
