Open to the world.
All the right ingredients for any business to thrive: the right neighbours, fast travel links to central London and the west, and a location in the heart of the UK’s tech hub with a growing social scene.
Reading – the power
of thinking differently.
Reading’s unique business culture has seen it crowned number one tech hub in the country. In 2015, it retained its spot as the UK’s most successful economy while tech firms and startups across Reading and Bracknell have earned this area the nickname of the UK’s Silicon Valley.
Apex is proud to occupy a prime position in this innovative area. Reading is surrounded by bold thinkers and forward looking pioneers, and is home to thirteen of the world’s top 30 brands, including Microsoft, Thales, Bayer, PepsiCo and Ernst & Young.
Apex is at the heart of a buzzing social and cultural scene where people come together. Try everything from jerk chicken to souvlaki at the CHOW Friday Food Market before sitting back to enjoy live bands and exciting cocktails at the stylish Botanist. Dining and dancing, museums and music – Reading is full of hidden gems.
