In business, location is key. Finding the right location for your business is so important, and we all know how frustrating it can be to find the right office space as well.
While Ellesmere Port might not be the first location that springs to mind when looking for a new office, you might be surprised by what it has to offer.
With that in mind, here are 5 reasons to consider re-locating your business to Ellesmere Port.
To start, Ellesmere Port benefits from being essentially right in the middle of everything, with great access to the likes of Chester, Liverpool and the Wirral.
Chester is only 7 miles away, and Liverpool is less than 15. You also have the M56 which connects directly to Manchester, and there are plenty of options via train. Being right in the centre of all this allows for easy access to the some of biggest cities around, and therefore all of their business opportunities.
This also means that while you have quick access to all of these locations, you don’t have to put up with the terrible traffic and lack of available parking spots that these busy cities normally provide on a daily basis.
Enjoy the benefits of working near these central locations without all the negatives that come with working in the city.
A business is only as good as it’s staff, and the key to a productive workforce is to keep them happy and healthy.
Lucky for you, Ellesmere Port has some fantastic local facilities that are perfect for the busy worker looking to blow off some steam.
As far as fitness goes, you have plenty of options including Core Fitness Centre and the Ellesmere Port Sports Village, which features a huge sports hall, 3 fitness studios, cycling studio & gym and 2 swimming pools.
If you prefer to get your exercise with a view and some fresh air, you have beautiful outdoors locations such as Rivacre Valley Nature Park and Stanney Woods, with dog friendly walking paths for those with furry friends.
Fans of golf can also enjoy a great game at Ellesmere Port Golf Club, with a clubhouse to relax with a drink afterwards and a fitness suite for those looking to improve their game.
We often complain that we don’t have enough time for these type of activities, but there are no excuses when all of this is available right on your doorstep.
