Good Places for Business in London

Shopping centre in Croydon

London is the financial capital in the world. The business environment here is huge and is characterised by the fierce competition demonstrated in every field. The good news is that if you make it in London, then you can make it everywhere. There are quite a few pretty attractive locations throughout the whole capital that are very business-friendly. No matter what your company’s main focus is, it is certain that it will be provided with all the opportunities for development if you choose to set up offices in some of those areas.

Canary Wharf, Tower Hamlets

It is common knowledge that The City is where the big financial transactions take place, and where the most successful companies are based. Things have started to change slowly but surely in the past couple of decades however. Canary Wharf used to be the location of the former East India Docks. As such, the district played a very important role in the development of the economy of the Colonial Empire, but after the closure of the docks it fell into demise. For half a century and even more, Canary Wharf was not a place that you’d like to stay after dark – and it was not very pleasant in daylight either. But starting from the 1990s, big-time investors set out to change the face of Canary Wharf, by improving the infrastructure and building skyscrapers that attract large international companies, law firms and corporations of various fields of the financial world. Today Canary Wharf is indeed the place to do business. You will find both the necessary environment here and the highly reliable London office removal services to help you move your business there.

Croydon, London Borough of Croydon

The main town in the South London borough of Croydon is one of the most business friendly environments in Greater London today. Despite the fact that it is relatively far away from the heart of the capital, Croydon enjoys very good transport links, excellent governance by the local council and the facilities to make nearly every business thrive. Croydon has a significantly lower unemployment rate than other areas in London, and it has actually been called one of the “most enterprising boroughs” in the capital. From retail to fine dining to manufacture and IT services – companies from all walks of life and business have presence in Croydon, making it a good place to consider.

Uxbridge, Hillingdon

Another borough centre, this time in West London, is the last offer on our current list. The reason we think that the town of Uxbridge will be suitable for your business in Greater London is quite similar to the ones we described above. There is one major difference that makes Uxbridge an even better place – its close proximity to the London Heathrow International Airport. If your business has anything to do with the aviation industry, or you are looking for a town with a well established business character that is unlikely to change in the future, this is the place for you.
