Location & Connections
Why locate in Bournemouth?
The new Digital Village will sit in an unrivalled location in the heart of the University Quarter of Bournemouth, within easy reach of the award winning blue flag beaches of Poole and Bournemouth, and close to excellent road, rail and air links. Just 1.5 hours from London by road (90 miles), 15 minutes from Bournemouth Airport (6 miles), and 35 minutes from Southampton Airport (45 miles), the Business Park will be unrivalled in the south of England.
There will be excellent on site facilities for modern Digital Technology companies looking for a new sustainable location with the highest standard of living, and the beautiful landscapes and scenery of the New Forest, and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site on the doorstep. Investors will appreciate this opportunity to become part of a dynamic Digital Village, with established networks with the award winning Bournemouth University and the Arts University Bournemouth, whose graduates are highly sought in the Media, Science, Creative and Digital sectors.
The Talbot Project Master Plan will create conditions that will allow the Universities to flourish, to continue to provide academic excellence and to develop the skills and expertise that will support the growth of the local economy. This will enable the area to develop as a centre of excellence, to help retain talent within the region, and develop the Talbot Project as a creative hub exemplar.
