It looks nice. Seems like they wanted to mimic Silicon Valley type amenities. A lot of the amenities seem to be useful but it's also likely designed so you won't have to leave campus and spend more time at work. The only thing that's missing is a quick walk in health clinic and pharmacy.

It's useless for parking though. My lad is working there at present, arrives at 05:30hrs to ensure a parking space

Is there ample access via public transport though?

Depends where you're coming from ! Two changes of train, and 2hrs, (plus the drive to the home railway station, plus the cost of parking at the railway station) compared with a 55 min (at that time of the day !) drive door to door, .

It's not great. Sky run shuttle buses from some main line stations to help with this. It kind of falls between two stools. Too far in to have decent car parking and not far enough in to have comprehensive 24/7 public transport access.

It's always been the same. I worked at Sky more than 10 years ago and parking was horrendous. Since then they have built a small multi-storey car park, but also cut some of the overflow parking away with the new studios.
