There's More To Marlow

On08/ 11 /16
Marlow is well known as a picaresque Buckinghamshire market town, that enjoys a wonderful setting on the River Thames

The town centre offers beautiful old buildings, a bustling high street with artisan shops and boutiques and some great eateries.

 However, there is more to this classic Thames-side town than meets the eye. We take a closer look.

1. It's Well Connected
Marlow occupies a privileged position in the Buckinghamshire countryside, with London roughly 30 miles to the South East, Reading about 15 miles to the South West and Oxford some 25 miles to the North West.
The motorway network is within easy reach, with the A404 providing access to the M40 in 5 miles and the M4 in 10 miles. The M25 is also just under 20 miles away and accessible in around 23 minutes in good traffic.

There are also plenty of public transport options from Marlow. The town's Railway station offers services to Bourne End and Maidenhead, where onward connections lead to both London and Reading. The journey time into Paddington via Maidenhead is 56 minutes, whilst Reading can be reached in 45 minutes. 

Buses also link the town with destinations including Henley and High Wycombe. And let's not forget that Heathrow airport, with its large selection of national and international flights, is just 25 miles away.

2. It's Near to Key Business Hubs
Marlow is located near to the business hubs of Slough, Reading and London.  There is therefore, no shortage of employment options in all sectors.
Slough is home to a high number of technology firms, with brands such as Siemens and Panasonic having bases with Slough Trading Estate. Reading brands include Mars, Auto Trader UK and Cisco Systems, whilst London with its diverse opportunities is within commuting distance.

3. It's Schools Are Second To None
Marlow boost 3 Ofsted rated outstanding primary schools, Spinfield, Marlow CofE Infants and Holy Trinity CofE . However, it doesn't fall short when it comes to secondary schools either. Great Marlow School was rated 'good' on last inspection and Sir William Borlase's Grammar has also achieved the coveted 'outstanding' rating. 

4. It Offers Plenty of Job Opportunities Of Its Own

We've already touched on employment in locations surrounding Marlow. However, the town has plenty of job opportunities of its own. The Marlow South East borough is home to more than 200 businesses employing in excess of 6,500 people. Employers within the borough include Thomas International, SAS UK, Softcat, Whistl and Dun & Bradstreet.

Hospitality and retail opportunities are also in strong supply thanks to the town's busy high street and strong 'foodie' reputation. Eateries in the town include Tom Kerridge's 'Hand and Flowers' and a good variety of other pubs and restaurants serving traditional English and world cuisine.
