- Rugeley, England
Rugeley was listed in the Domesday Book, but there’s far more to this bustling, sociable market town than its history. Nestling in the heart of Staffordshire between Cannock, Stafford, Lichfield and Uttoxeter, nowadays it’s home to an appealing cluster of shops, pubs, cafés, bars and restaurants, not to mention the nearby golf course and excellent leisure centre with pool. Great transport links keep Rugeley well connected to its neighbours and the rest of the country, with Birmingham city centre less than an hour away by train and the West Coast Main Line providing a direct link to London. Nevertheless, the town’s immediate location is surely its greatest asset – it’s just a stone’s throw from the picturesque delights of Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a mountain bikers’ paradise.
- Hemel Hempstead, England
In the heart of Herts, on the banks of the Grand Union canal, close to the M1 and on the main rail link between London and the Midlands, Hemel Hempstead is a historically well-situated town. And what a history that is, stretching all the way back to Roman times. Of course, there’s plenty to recommend in busy, modern, family-friendly Hemel today. It’s well-served for shops, cafés and pubs, with outdoor markets and the old town adding plenty of charm. Or you could head for the fun-packed Jarman Park leisure centre, with its multiplex cinema, ten-pin bowling, water park, ice rink and dry ski slope. Just make sure you don’t get trapped on the town’s infamous Magic Roundabout.
- Marston Gate, Milton Keynes, England
Marston Gate is 20 minutes from Luton Airport and a short walk from the Thames Link rail service. Located at Junction 13 on the M1, our impressive fulfilment centre is easily accessible to most motorways.
- Doncaster, England
Doncaster is an historic market town at the southern edge of Yorkshire, with a rich horseracing and railway heritage. Founded in AD 71 by the Romans due to its strategic position on the River Don, transport and connectivity continue to play an important part to this day. The town of Doncaster sits at the very heart of a vast metropolitan area, consisting of green open spaces, nature reserves and an amazing variety of flora and fauna. Doncaster includes ancient villages and towns such as Conisbrough and Tickhill, both of which have Norman castles. Our new fulfilment centre is based at Firstpoint, a distribution park just off of J3 of the M18, with easy links to the M1, A1M, M62 and M180.
- Peterborough, England
The city of Peterborough is home to a perfect blend of historical and contemporary culture. Located on the River Nene in Cambridgeshire, its rich Bronze Age roots can still be explored at Flag Fen: a fascinating archaeological site just five miles from the bustling city centre. In fact, many past inhabitants have contributed to the city’s modern identity. At its heart stands St Peter’s Cathedral, once an abbey plundered by the Danes, rebuilt by the Normans and closed by Henry VIII. Residents can also relax and roll back the centuries in the beautiful Victorian-era landscape of Central Park. Having been declared a new town in the 1960s, Peterborough’s population boomed, and since then a fantastic array of leisure options have kept locals entertained. Whether it’s splashing the cash in one of the three shopping centres, taking a dip in the heated waters of the Lido or hitting the town for a drink and a dance, there are plenty of ways to spend your spare time.
- Dunfermline, Scotland
Amazon’s fulfilment centre in Dunfermline will be the biggest in the UK. The size of 14 football pitches, in fact. The site itself is right next to the M90 and A92, so it’s within easy reach of Edinburgh, Stirling and St Andrews. Surrounded by stunning scenery and filled with attractions that include a Norman abbey, a royal palace and a racing circuit, there’s plenty to do both indoors and out. And if it’s the great outdoors you’re after, you couldn’t pick a better place. Fife is full of pretty villages and stunning coastal walks – and, of course, you’re never too far from a golf course. But there’s more to Dunfermline than the landscape. There’s also a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants, plus a theatre and a host of music venues. And if that’s not enough, all the culture and sophistication of Edinburgh is just across the river.
- Gourock, Inverclyde, Scotland
Our Gourock Fulfilment Centre is located on the River Clyde benefiting from impressive views of the Firth of Clyde and the surrounding Argyll Hills. Gourock is 40 minutes from Glasgow International Airport and 1 hour from Prestwick Airport. Gourock is linked to Glasgow by the M8 motorway, and has a direct train service to Glasgow Central Station, allowing easy travel throughout the UK.
- Swansea, Wales
With the spectacular five-mile sweep of Swansea Bay – perfect for horse riding and leisurely strolls – and the Gower peninsula and city of Cardiff just a short drive away, Swansea is somewhere you can enjoy a great quality of life. The city boasts an award-winning marina and maritime quarter, which is home to the National Waterfront Museum. A short walk from the maritime quarter across the iconic Sali Bridge takes you to the new SA1 Swansea Waterfront, an exciting development of modern offices, apartments, hotels and brasseries. Back in the city centre you’ll find the largest indoor market in Wales, and a wide range of clubs, bars and restaurants to suit every age and taste. There’s no question that Swansea is a great place to live and work.
