Our locations


Vanilla Factory, Liverpool

Based in the heart of Liverpool, the Coder Space campus is easily accessible by rail, bus and road. We are within walking distance of some great restaurants, cafes and bars around the city centre where you can relax at lunchtime, or in the evening once the hard work stops.

Our 1,500sqft training centre based in the Ropewalks area of Liverpool's Baltic Triangle, the bustling hub of the city's tech scene, is modern, but with an industrial heritage. Our campus offers a spacious and fun learning environment with great accessibility, modern facilities and free refreshments, as well as table football and a PS4 so you can let off steam after a hard day coding.
