Why Basingstoke is a first class location for business

As an evolving digital marketing agency based in Basingstoke for close to eight years, Fruitful Marketing knows first hand how Basingstoke is an incredible hub for business.

Basingstoke benefits from a rich history of business, attracting huge names over the years such as De La Rue, the AA, Twinings, Bombay Sapphire, IBM and Game to name a few.

Proudly being the largest town in Hampshire, Basingstoke is ideally located with excellent access to the M3 motorway. It is attractive for meetings and company employees alike,  therefore it is no wonder that, House of Fisher, our client since 2016, selected Basingstoke as one of its serviced apartment locations.

House of Fisher operates Central Point, a property of studio and 1-bedroom serviced apartments in the heart of Basingstoke. The majority of the Central Point guests are corporate travellers visiting the area. Whilst there are hotel alternatives, a savvy corporate traveller on an extended stay will long for the benefits of an apartment; desk and dining area, the ability to cook within your fully furnished kitchen, weekly cleans and significantly more space.

The Basingstoke business hub is highlighted further by three nearby business parks; Basing View, Chineham and Viables.

Basingstoke train station is another huge draw, with quick, regular trains heading to London Waterloo. Such is the appeal of the train station, it is attracting leisure visitors, who enjoy the same benefits of commuters, opting to stay out of the city for a more peaceful night's sleep at a significantly lower cost. Plan your journey online.

On the doorstep are many activities that the Fruitful Marketing team enjoy as part of our unwinding, after a hard day's work! Swinging a golf club at one of the many local courses, watching comedy or a show at one of Basingstoke’s two renowned theatres, shouting for the Basingstoke Bisons (who we proudly sponsored the U12 team) at Planet Ice, bowling a strike at Hollywood Bowl, indoor skydiving, watching the latest blockbusters at one of the two cinemas, potting high breaks at the snooker club… the list of options and activities are endless!

As a Basingstoke business we are proud to be located amongst such an array of activities and hundreds of like-minded businesses (many of whom are clients) that appreciate and help Basingstoke to continue to be a first class location to live, work and enjoy.
