The St Albans Centre is in a prime business location on a small business park very close to the amenities and sights of this historic cathedral and market town. The interior is relaxed and contemporary. Attractively landscaped outdoor areas provide an extra space where employees can work or unwind. St Albans is 20 miles from central London, in Hertfordshire, a dynamic county with a record of consistent economic growth well above the national average as well as an outstanding business infrastructure and a highly skilled, well-educated workforce. One of the strengths of the local economy is the diversity of businesses based in the county, including electronics, IT, digital communications, aerospace, computer software, film and media, pharmaceuticals and financial services companies. There are also many small businesses and consultancies in the St Albans area as well as two major world class centres of excellence specialising in environmental issues.
