Horley is often referred to as the ‘gateway to Gatwick Airport’ due to its close proximity and this welcoming town is a great choice for businesses looking to build on the opportunity it provides. With both London and Brighton easily reachable in under an hour, as well as Gatwick Airport less than five minutes away, companies have the world at their feet here.
This charming and quiet residential town is filled with delightful period properties and a range of shops and eateries on the High Street, and is also home to several thriving business estates which offer flexible and modern office rentals. Gatwick Airport is a massive local employer and travel industries would benefit from the connections here, both globally and for commuting to the capital. Despite being known as a commuter town, Horley has a flourishing economy of its own thanks to the many stores on the High Street and business parks.
Available Office Space
Horley is a great choice for smaller businesses and start-ups seeking a quieter location with brilliant connections. Offices here are well-equipped to provide companies with a professional environment, with the flexibility of serviced terms or managed leases to suit individual needs and close to the town amenities. Horley also has several car parks in the town centre, although public transport is regular and a more convenient option for most commuters.
In addition to the nearby airport, Horley is within easy reach of Crawley, the villages of Charlwood and Copthorne, East Grinstead and Reigate.
Horley benefits from regular buses and trains, with routes into London Victoria and London Bridge taking under 50 minutes. Brighton is just a 30-minute journey while office tenants can be at Gatwick Airport in just two minutes by train or ten minutes by car. There are buses running at least once per hour which cover a wide range of neighbouring locations, including Crawley, Reigate and Redhill. Horley enjoys a prime location by the M23, with connections onto the M25.
Cafés and Restaurants
From delicious Italian fare at Zeno’s and Il Sorrisso to traditional pub food Ye Olde Six Bells, Horley has a variety of food options to grab dinner after a day in the office. If you want to grab lunch on your break, head to one of the many coffee shops and cafés in the town centre such as Serendipity Coffee Co. Alternatively, there are numerous supermarkets where you can pick up breakfast before work.
