History & Geography

Bracknell is a small town in Berkshire in England approximately 11 miles away from Reading and 28 miles west of London. Surrounding the town are Swinley Woods and Crowthorne Woods, two vast expanses of forest. Some of the areas covered by the town were previously in the parishes of Easthampstead, Warfield, Binfield and Winkfield. The town was the site of a favourite royal hunting lodge where Catherine of Aragon was banished while she awaited divorce. In the 18th and 17th centuries, the area was a notorious haven for highwaymen, including the famous Dick Turpin, who was said to drink at the Hinds Head Inn near the town. In 1949, Bracknell was named a new town and refurbished and expanded. Since then, the town has expanded far beyond what was originally intended, with the latest expansion having occurred in 2008.


Bracknell is home to a host of high-tech companies such as Fujitsu, Panasonic, Siemens, Hewlett-Packard, Cable and Wireless, Avnet Tech Solutions and DEC. The UK headquarters office of the BMW Group is also based in the town, as is the head office of supermarket giant Waitrose. Bracknell was, in the past, a fairly significant manufacturing centre, however, most of this disappeared in the late 1980s. The Met Office also had a large presence in the town before moving to Exeter.


Bracknell is well known for hosting the Big Day Out Festival, one of the largest World Music and acoustic festivals in the UK. The town’s theatre scene is based around the Wilde Theatre, named after Oscar Wilde who named a character in The Importance of Being Ernest for the town – Lady Bracknell. Several scenes from the Harry Potter films were shot in Bracknell, as was the famous 1970s psychological thriller The Offence. The sports scene in the town is centred around Bracknell Town FC, which plays in the Southern League Premier Division South.


Bracknell boasts two railway stations, Bracknell and Martins Heron. Both of these lie on the Waterloo to Reading Line, operated by South West Trains. Currently, Bracknell functions as a popular commuter town, being conveniently situated for both London and Reading. Bracknell is at the end of the A329 between the M3 and M4 motorways. Bracknell also has a fairly comprehensive bus service run by First Berkshire & The Thames Valley.

Office Space to rent in Bracknell

In 2013, when this piece was first published, for a town of its size, Bracknell had a fair amount of quality Grade A office space. The latest development to reach completion was London House, a 13,753-square-foot property.

Much of the demand in Bracknell stems from the town’s active technology sector which is very active in Bracknell due to the town’s convenient location.

The prime office rent in the town was approximately £25 per square foot.

In 2017, the commencement of a major transformation of Bracknell town centre began to rejuvenate the area and, in 2021, it was still ongoing.

Eli Lilly’s 42,500 sq ft acquisition of 8 Arlington Square was the largest letting in Bracknell in 2020.

And one of Bracknell’s biggest office lettings of 2022 was the agreement to rent the 9,848 sqft fourth floor at Three Arlington Square. It was acquired by the online training company, iHasco.

Headline prime office rents remain at £30 per square foot and the majority of letting deals by large technology companies sign for the type of space that can justify that rental rate.

For those seeking less than 3,000 sqft, plug-and-play ready-to-go fitted office space is becoming increasingly popular and landlords are increasingly making this type of space available.

There are also several serviced office providers in Bracknell that focus purely on delivering flexible office space and workspace solutions.

Solutions include private serviced office suites, managed offices, coworking memberships and other forms of flexible leased workspace.

These options are fully furnished and fitted, are available on shorter-term contracts and, in the majority of cases, offer all-inclusive pricing.
