In partnership with Tech City UK, we have created a series of infographics which look at the UK’s fastest growing tech cities. The infographics follow on from Tech City UK’s Tech Nation 2017 report which is the most comprehensive analysis of the clusters powering the UK’s digital economy.
Our infographics focus on the distribution of tech businesses throughout each city centre and highlight current property conditions and emerging property trends. They present practical information about what it costs to be based in each city and whether the existing property market favours landlords or tech businesses.

Leeds offers tech businesses office choice, availability and affordability within a deep pool of talent. Successful tech companies like Rockstar Leeds, William Hill and Sky Bet have found a home in the city centre.
Manchester has seen significant growth across the various tech sectors with a number of major UK tech occupiers having expanded their businesses from a Manchester HQ.
High demand means there is currently low available of floorspace for tech occupiers but pipeline development means new opportunities are approaching.
As the UK’s tech powerhouse, there will be more tech GVA growth here than any other sector. It’s largely for shiny new floorspace rather than the industrial-style, more affordable space wanted by smaller tech firms.
Demand for offices in Reading & Bracknell means businesses face competition for stock but a solid development pipeline protects quality choice and helps to keep a lid on rent escalation.
Cardiff & Swansea form one of the most affordable UK tech clusters. It combines lower costs with market leading talent, particularly in cyber security, networking and creative specialisms.
The local tech scene in Bristol & Bath has changed from a few pioneering start-ups into a more mature ecosystem since the first co-working space opened.
