Before Crawley’s designation as a “New Town” in 1947, Manor Royal was no more than a field as part of a rich landowner's estate. From then Manor Royal's growth was rapid. Soon after Princess Elizabeth officially named it in 1950, Manor Royal became a prime location to many global household name occupiers.
What was to be a place of skilled employment for 8,500 local people became home to 30,000 jobs. What was to support business from six or seven key industries attracted over 600 businesses from numerous sectors. What started as a traditional manufacturing base, evolved allowing today's occupiers to source a full range of supplies and services from within Manor Royal itself.
Today Manor Royal is one of the biggest and best performing business areas in the South East, a place where you can think it, make it, store it and move it. Whatever your business, you can probably do it in Manor Royal.
