There are exciting times ahead for Shoreham Port in 2019, as it expands its bank of commercial property available for hire, which will benefit local businesses and the wider community. Following on from the successes of the fully serviced office centre, Maritime House, Shoreham Port are now unveiling their recently renovated Visitor Centre for hire at flexible hourly and day rates from January 2019.
The Port’s fully serviced and self-contained Visitor Centre boasts an open-plan event space with seating for approximately 30 delegates, as well as a break-off meeting room. The bright, airy modern space is located on the ground floor of the Port’s head office, Nautilus House, reached via a private entrance which is fully wheelchair accessible. The venue also offers a kitchen with full amenities.
The Port’s Visitor Centre is ideally located, just a four-minute walk away from Southwick Railway Station and a one-minute walk from the 700 Stagecoach bus stop. By opening up the Visitor Centre to stakeholders and the local community, the Port aims to support local businesses who are struggling to find affordable meeting space. The space is already being utilised by local charity As You Are, once a week for their Systemic Family Therapy that began this month. Mentoring and coaching has also taken place in the Visitor Centre, along with yoga classes and training workshops.
Tim Hague, Director of Property and Development commented “We’re very pleased that renovations on our Visitor Centre are complete and that the space can be used for the benefit of our stakeholders and the local community. Affordable space is at a premium in the local area and we hope that by opening up our doors we can support local businesses who are in need of a fully accessible, modern and professional space for their meetings and events.’’
Rowena Tyler, Community Rail Developer at Sussex Community Rail Partnership who recently hired the Visitor Centre commented “It was fantastic to be able to book out Shoreham Port's Visitor Centre for our Annual General Meeting. The space was perfect for our 30 guests and we even managed to turn the meeting room into a buffet space! Thoroughly recommend to anyone in the area looking for a fuss free venue to hire.”
