Farnborough is a town in Hampshire which has a long history of aviation research and development. The UK’s first wind tunnel was built here in 1917 and it played a leading role in the development of Concorde. Today much of that research has moved elsewhere but the airport remains and still plays host to the bi-annual Farnborough International Airshow which is one of the worlds most important aerospace events.
The town offers a diverse range of business accommodation for companies of all sizes. The town centre has some mid-eighties style buildings which have been refurbished to provide affordable office accommodation. While modern purpose-built accommodation is available at the Hub in Farnborough Business Park. This sits close to the airport and provides a mixed-use environment of offices, restaurants and recreation space.
The town has three railway stations, with the main Farnborough station sitting on the South Western Main Line which connects central London to Portsmouth via Eastleigh. The journey to London Waterloo takes approximately 50 minutes. While Farnborough North and North Camp stations both sit on the North Downs Line which connects to Reading and Gatwick Airport.
