In business, first impressions count and Active Business Centre based in the historic St Andrew’s Castle certainly impresses. The centre provides flexible, fully serviced offices, conferencing suites, meeting rooms, hot desking and virtual office services (telephone answering and registered business address). Opened in 1989, we are one of the most prestigious business centres in East Anglia. We provide first class services to companies who need to focus on growing their business, not managing their office.
Come and look around our elegant conference and meeting rooms as well as our serviced offices. Meet the team and tell us how we can further support your business activities, client meetings, presentations or training sessions.
Our reception area and serviced offices provide the vital professional business face to all your clients and colleagues. The fully equipped offices have everything you need to connect your laptop or PC and start working straight away. We run your office so you can grow your business.
We provide the important registered business address and telephone answering service to maintain your professional image. We understand the value of the first impression – a human voice to speak to your customers, take messages and ensure they are prioritised and handled according to your needs.
We offer prestigious conference facilities with a range of conference rooms including our elegant oak-panelled Library, with it’s adjacent conference room and smaller meeting and syndicate rooms. These suit virtually any style of business event.
We offer a quiet and professional environment in which to work. Using a hot-desk at the Active Business Centre is as easy as “walk in, help yourself to a coffee, sit down and start working”. No pre-booking or reservations required, just cost effective workspace available as and when you need it.
The Bury Practice
It is very important for our work that the venue we work in feels professional, safe and welcoming. The team at the ABC have worked with us for over ten years providing exactly that service for both us and our clients. The team is able to tailor their response to differing situations and are a huge part of the success we have.
The Centre for Business and Public Sector Ethics has benefited from the facilities of the Active Business Centre since 1997. We continue to be delighted with the facilities and professionalism of their staff.
Direct Access Supplies
Customer Service is our top priority, therefore it is vitally important for us to have a professional approach when dealing with our customers’ incoming telephone calls. We have been associated with The Active Business Centre for in excess of 18 years and have always been impressed by their professionalism. Using their Virtual Office (non-residential) package provides us with a cost effective ‘human’ response to incoming telephone calls, which is invaluable when we are out of the office, or in meetings. This service is also very effective in filtering out the ever increasing barrage of incoming telesales calls, meaning that we know most of our calls will be genuine customers!

We have used the Active Business Centre for some time now and they are fantastic!
The reception staff have always gone out of their way to assist us when required.
With a town centre location and ample parking, what else could a company want? We appreciate everything they do for us and are always happy to recommend them when I hear of companies looking for serviced offices.

As a periodic user of The Active Business Centre for running seminars and photoshoots, the team couldn’t be more helpful. Always cheerful, welcoming and efficient, making sure the room being hired is laid out, or in some cases, cleared of tables and chairs on arrival. The little things included make a big difference, right down to water and glasses always being to hand. Thank you for helping my events run smoothly.
Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS)
We have used the Active Business Centre on a regular basis for meetings and presentations over the last couple of years. The venue is excellently positioned in the centre of Bury St Edmunds, it has all the facilities that we need and the staff are always helpful and accommodating to our requirements. We would have no hesitation in recommending it.
If you are looking for a professional, but friendly business environment for your business, then the Active Business Centre is for you. It has great meeting facilities and parking in a stunning location, whilst still being convenient for the centre of Bury St Edmunds. The staff are excellent and very helpful too.

St Andrews Castle, housing the Active Business Centre, is a stunningly beautiful building which oozes character and charm. With its sweeping driveway, town centre location and ample parking, it offers everything we could need. However it is the warmth and professionalism of the staff which sets it apart as an exceptional place to work and conduct our business. The facilities provided are excellent, and the staff will always go the extra mile to make sure the centre runs smoothly, and provide an environment it is a pleasure to work in, and host clients or business contacts in too.
