Here's what our commercial tenants and clients think about our facility:

When deciding on a venue for our team building day, we were looking for somewhere different but still within easy reach of Chester's city centre. We stumbled upon a great space at the Riverside Innovation Centre and decided to book. The location was great, with parking nearby at the Little Roodee car park. It also allowed easy access into the city for an evening meal - all within walking distance. Being able to break out and visit the river throughout the day was also an added bonus!Clare Watts, HR Manager, Iceland Foods Ltd
