About Weir Bank and Bray Business Centre

Bray Business Centre is situated in the grounds of Weir Bank on the banks of the river Thames at Bray (famous for it’s Michelin-starred restaurants and celebrity chefs).

The Business Centre is comprised of the outlying buildings that formed part of the magnificent Weir Bank Estate, the main house of which was destroyed by fire in the early 1970s.

At Bray Business Centre you won’t find polished marble floors or huge leather settees, but you will find a friendly, relaxed business environment, and a wide range of other businesses to work and socialise with.

The history of Weir Bank

The main house at Weir Bank was developed by Sir Hugo Cunliffe-Owen in the early 20th century. Sir Hugo was a keen horse owner and breeder, and owned the 1928 Espom Derby winner “Felstead”.

Weir Bank was bought by Herbert Oppenheimer, a London Solicitor, who moved there from Caterham in Kent during 1930.  A passionate rose-grower, Herbert was President of the National Rose Society.

The main house at Weir Bank was destroyed by fire in the early 1970s. The Estate was subsequently purchased by the Kidd family and remains a family-run business.
