Peterborough is the biggest city in the East of England and sits within three of the UK’s fastest growth areas – the London-Stansted-Cambridge-Corridor-Consortium, the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, and encompassing our most northern area, the Midlands Engine.
Peterborough is one of the most competitive locations in the country; premium office space goes for 40% the rate in Cambridge and 60% of Milton Keynes; yet a base in Peterborough puts you next to the A1(M), A47 and A11, provides a 39-minute direct train ride to London King’s Cross, and access to an agile, skilled workforce.
Peterborough’s diverse economy spans the entire agri-food supply chain, advanced manufacturing and materials, digital and IT, logistics and warehousing, and construction.
With one of the highest business start-up rates in the country, Peterborough’s gigabit speed infrastructure is powering the adoption of automation, digital factories, and artificial intelligence.
Thanks to some of the most comprehensive gigabit connectivity in the county, Peterborough has a nationally significant cluster of over 6,000 businesses specialising in high-tech manufacturing, agri-food, and logistics and distribution. Many of these businesses aren’t just adopting cutting-edge technology, they’re pioneering their own solutions.
