Five miles north of Cardiff city centre, nestled within a Nature Reserve on the River Taff, is Cardiff Edge, an 11-hectare landscaped Life Sciences R&D site providing serviced lab space in Cardiff.
Recently having undergone a £1.5m refurbishment, Cardiff Edge reflects South Wales’ ambition to create an exemplary life sciences ecosystem, connecting business, academia and the public sector at a single location.
Companies on-site include Cytiva (formerly GE Healthcare) and the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs.
Local to the site are amenities such as the Taff trail (a dedicated cycle and pedestrian route running from Cardiff Bay through the city centre), a Starbucks Drive-Thru, supermarkets and The Village Hotel.
