Southern Oxfordshire’s garden of discovery
There’s nowhere else like Science Vale. This region of fresh air and free-thinking contains two of the UK’s leading big-science research centres (Culham and Harwell). Strategically located midway between the M4 and Oxford (home to the world’s number-one ranked university), the region extends into the North Wessex Downs area of outstanding natural beauty.

Science Vale encourages you to think big and to run free – to let your business, your family, and your social life flourish.

Come and join us. If you’re as hungry as we are to do things differently, the opportunities are limitless.
