Welcome to the Central South
The UK’s Global Gateway
The UK is the world’s fifth largest economy. It offers a robust, business-friendly environment to reliably expand, trade, and invest.
The Central South is located on the south coast of the UK, less than one hour from London. A global gateway with vibrant waterfront cities and rich heritage, surrounded by remarkable nature and a striking coastline.
It is a world class place to do business, with the added benefits of waterfront living and having two National Parks on your doorstep. Few regions can match the Central South as a location to live, work, and play.
