Welcome to The Magdalen Centre

As the Park’s thriving innovation centre located in the heart of the Park, we provide you with flexible office and laboratory accommodation, meeting room and conference hire, catering and hospitality.

Split into two buildings: North and South, linked by an internal bridge, it also includes the Café Magdalen servicing delicious fresh food and coffee.

From here you can download the latest lunch menus, and request a meeting room.

Due to the announcement of the second lockdown and reduced demand, we are closing the Sadler Deli as from Wednesday 4 November until further notice.

Magdalen Café will remain open as a take-away service offering cooked breakfast, hot lunch, sandwiches and barista coffees.
