The area has witnessed Magna Carta, as well as the births, marriages & deaths of many of the Kings & Queens of England, who have resided in the world-famous Windsor Castle since the 11th century.

Today Windsor proudly retains many of its traditions within an environment that is very much in the 21st Century; with many “millennials” choosing to move to what is very much an English country town influenced by London.

IN GOOD COMPANY

Windsor is home to some of the largest companies such as Centrica, British Gas, Nintendo and Konami but what attracts
them to this region?

With the strongest local economy in the UK outside of London, Berkshire is a thriving knowledge sector, with no signs of a slow-down in Foreign Direct Investment, private equity investment, recruitment activity or property market activity,  all this makes for a highly attractive location for ambitious businesses.

Berkshire has a particularly high concentration of companies operating in the digital technologies (e.g. Software, IT, cyber security, telecoms), life sciences and healthcare, and energy and environment sectors.

The region is economically strong with a higher employment rate, and lower unemployment and economic inactivity rates than both the national and regional averages.

Excellent transport links, beautiful countryside and its proximity to Heathrow Airport, makes Berkshire and especially Windsor with its iconic, historical beauty and country parks, a very desirable place to set up business, relocate or find employment.
