Lunchtime woodland walks, alfresco meetings and social gatherings: Southampton Science Park’s 72 acres offer plenty of opportunities for fresh air and exercise amid attractive landscaped green space.
27 acres of the Science Park site are designated a protected conservation area and managed by us for the benefit of our business community, guests of Chilworth Manor Hotel and the general public. This Site of Importance for Nature Conservation comprises a wide range of habitats, the result of a variety of historical uses and the underlying geological diversity.
It’s no surprise then that we are working to become a model of environmental best practice. All our premises benchmark positively for energy efficiency and environmental impact: our newer buildings use energy-efficient air source heat pumps to provide integrated heating and cooling while older ones are undergoing a comprehensive programme of refurbishment to enhance their efficiency. We are further committed to minimising waste and reducing the use of non-renewable energy sources across the site.

We looked at a lot of other options but the Science Park is fundamentally the right environment for us.
Acres of green land, lakes, walking routes and picnic spots.
Different running routes designed and shared in SO Magazine each year.
Protected circles of conifer trees in the park's very own Arboretum.
