Despite the uncertainty over what a post-Brexit London will look like, there is no denying that London is one of the world’s leading hubs for business and commerce.
With a reputation as a “command centre” for the global economy, London typically attracts a myriad of businesses of all shapes and sizes.
However, depending on the nature of your business, some of London’s most sought-after areas might not be a perfect match.
To help you ensure that your business moves into the right area, Commercial People has compiled a short guide detailing the top 5 London areas and the typical companies they host.
1. The City – dominated by finance and banking, the City is perhaps the London area with the
highest business value, having strong links to the economy in other parts of the country.
2. Westminster – with an approximate 5,780,000m2 of office space, Westminster is an undisputed centre for business and government. A number of business head offices choose to situate themselves in this area.
3. Camden and Islington – Camden has a reputation as being a centre for the creative industries and, as such, attracts a number of businesses in the areas of art, fashion and design.
4. Canary Wharf – this district is famous for being a centre for media and banking. The large
swathes of modern, high-tech offices typically attract start-ups and disruptor businesses.
5. Lambeth and Southwark – this area has a lower concentration of office space than the others on the list but is still highly popular with accountancy, consultants and local government offices and, as such, has a high market value.
