Central London is home to a diverse array of UK and international businesses and organisations. The city boasts some of the world's most sought after commercial and residential properties, which makes for a dynamic market for office space.
Within central London, each district is synonymous with distinct business sectors. The EC3 postcode, for example, has long been favoured by insurances companies keen to be close to the iconic Lloyd's building, while the square mile itself accommodates over 500 banks.
The West End tends to be favoured by the creative industries, with media agencies occupying the Soho and Noho areas.
Kings Cross and Clerkenwell, though, are also quickly emerging as the new creative office space areas. Kings Cross used to be a relatively run-down area, but with the hotly anticipated arrival of Google, it has become a popular destination.
Start ups now take space in converted industrial buildings and totemic media firms such as the Guardian Media Group are tenants too. Similarly, Clerkenwell alsoused to be part of London's industrial region, but it's now home to many design agencies and media firms who covet the loft-style offices in the area.
For a more high profile location, the district of Mayfair is arguably the most prestigious address within central London. It is popular with large corporate HQs, embassies and boutique hedge funds who like the smaller, converted residential space within period properties.
Finding a space for your business can be a challenge but the right challenge brings the benefits of attracting the right staff and giving your company a head start.
