Nuneaton Railway Station (Approx 21 mins direct to Birmingham New Street)
Birmingham International Airport

Nuneaton is strategically located within the highly accessible ‘Golden Logistics Triangle’ (M1,M6,M42) and further benefits from being a short distance from the cities of Birmingham, Leicester and Coventry. Nuneaton is the largest town in Warwickshire and serves as a major retailing centre within the West Midlands conurbation, with a catchment population of 171,000. The Abbeygate Shopping Centre is situated on the north side of Abbey Street in the heart of the town centre, within the town’s pedestrianised retailing offer. The town holds a popular and successful market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Nuneaton bus station is located opposite the Harefield Road entrance to the shopping centre and the railway station is also just 0.3 miles away, generating strong footfall throughout the day.




The Abbeygate Shopping Centre was originally constructed as an open scheme and was refurbished in 1991 when a glass atrium roof was fitted. The property comprises 40 retail units, a tenant only 62 space car park at first floor level and rear service yard. In addition, there is a two storey office building known as Heron House (separately accessed from Abbey Street), with a secure ground floor lobby and lift area. The retail units trade at ground floor level, with some units benefiting from first floor ancillary space. The retail/ancillary accommodation totals 7,116.74 sq m (76,606 sq ft), with the office accommodation totalling 1,231.68 sq m (13,258 sq ft). Therefore, the total approximate floor area of the property is 8,348.42 sq m (89,864 sq ft). Additionally, the property benefits from an approximate site area of 0.77 hectares (1.90 acres).
