Alderley Park is more than an office, it’s an entire community offering a million square feet of groundbreaking chemistry, biology and pathology labs, dedicated incubator facilities and a range of shared science services. The Mereside Campus within the site is part of Manchester Science Partnerships, one of the leading science and technology park operators in Europe. Dedicated to helping shape the future of the world’s health, the UK’s largest bioscience campus at Alderley Park offers exceptional facilities for R&D focussed life science companies from start-ups to global corporates. Alderley Park is one of the best connected parks in the UK with site-wide WiFi, cash machines, an Amazon locker, gift shop, cycle racks and showers all on hand for your convenience.
Historically the site belonged to the Stanley family and Alderley House was the place where influential citizens would meet. Former prime minister Herbert Asquith visited the hall regularly and famously brought a young Winston Churchill with him who planted a chestnut tree in the grounds. The entire estate was home to 77 farms and 166 houses. Fires, debts and war saw the end of the Stanley’s reign and it saw significant change in the landscape of post-war Britain. The site has been home to life sciences since 1957 when ICI started to develop laboratories there, and in the late 90s AstraZeneca bought the site. Since then it has seen, and expects, huge investments to keep it on the map as the centre of life science and innovation.
