Slough is a large town in Berkshire, England, 20 miles west of central London and 17 miles north-east of Reading, in the Thames Valley. Slough’s population is one of the most ethnically diverse in the United Kingdom, attracting people from across the country and the world for labour since the 1920s, which has helped shape it into a major trading centre. Slough has the highest concentration of global corporate HQs outside London. Slough Trading Estate is the largest industrial estate in single private ownership in Europe with over 17,000 jobs in 400 businesses. Blackberry, McAfee, Burger King and Lego have head offices in the town. Slough is also home to the business support organisation Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Group and National Foundation for Educational Research, which is housed in the Mere. The motor trade has long been represented in Slough. Until 1966, Citroën assembled cars in a Liverpool Road factory (later used by Mars Confectionery), and it retains its UK headquarters in the town.

The journey between London City Airport and Slough
London City Airport is a relatively small international airport in the Royal Docks area of London. With over 4.5 million passengers going through the airport doors in 2018, this airport is the fifth-busiest in London after Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, and Luton. Located just 7 miles east of Central London and 30 miles east of Slough, London City Airport is fairly easy to access at most times of the day. While peak hour traffic can be challenging due to the airport’s central location, we leave enough time to ensure that you always make your flight.
The journey between London City Airport and Slough is busy but relatively straightforward, with most travellers going east along the M4 directly to the town of Slough. While this long 30-mile journey will take just over 1 hour in good traffic conditions, this estimate can stretch out in peak hour conditions or when bottlenecks develop due to inner-city accidents. Slough is on the western fringes of the Greater London Urban Area, making it a great destination for people who want to explore London or the surrounding countryside to the west.
