ROCKETDESK is based in the Surrey Research Park, a prestigious and dynamic tech-focused environment with links to the University of Surrey.


The working environment is modern and comfortable, but with the benefit of being located in one of Guildford’s green spaces. You will work in a beautiful low-density environment, with many open grass-spaces and two lakes on-site. The SRP is located in the town of Guildford, which has been a hub of UK video game development for many years now.


Guildford has been called the "Hollywood of video games", and it's easy to see why. Many important titles, such as Bullfrog’s Theme Park, Dungeon Keeper, and Syndicate franchises were all made in Guildford. The racing studio Criterion built the Burnout franchise here. Lionhead created Black & White, Fable and others in the area. Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Epic Games (Unreal) and other important worldwide companies all have major offices in Guildford.


Guildford also has a rich heritage in wider technology beyond the video games sector, with many successful web, tech and creative companies located in the town. This includes high-tech success stories like Surrey Satellite Technology: the world's premier provider of commercial satellite programmes.

Guildford is located on the main line railway to London, so you can be in Central London in about 35 minutes. Likewise, the Surrey Research Park has excellent transport links via the A3, allowing car users to be on the M25 in just a few minutes.


The area also benefits from excellent schools and educational establishments, and a strong community focus for game developers and other tech professionals. Join us for regular pub meets and other community events throughout the year. Guildford also plays host to a number of professional sporting teams (football, ice-hockey, basketball), amateur sports of all types and a variety of watersports (kayaking) on the River Wey.


Next door to the Surrey Research Park is the Surrey Sports Park, with some incredible sporting and fitness facilities. About 10 minutes drive away is the Guildford Spectrum Leisure Complex, with further fitness and sporting opportunities available there.




Rocketdesk hosts several social events throughout the year. Our members also attend various other groups, events and conferences hosted by other individuals and companies. We've collected a few of our favourites here.

Rocketdesk is proud to be affiliated with several local companies and service providers, helping our members to achieve their potential.


Rocketdesk is a community-led venture. Our members are the life-blood of the space, and more importantly they are our friends and colleagues. If you're a creative tech professional then we'd love you to join us.
