Whether your business is a start-up or already established, choosing a serviced office in the City of London has some major advantages, and can even help you to grow your brand.
Location, Location, Location
75% of Fortune 500 companies have offices in London, for the most obvious reason- The City is accessible to your every need. There are different modes of transportation from buses, 8 TFL stations including different tube lines and mainline train stations. Getting to and from work from the rest of London as well as several outer boroughs is not a challenge at all.
To accommodate work-life balance, you want to be situated in an area that makes it easy to complete chores such as visiting the post office or bank. Within the boundaries of the City of London there are a plethora of major UK and foreign banks, and if you choose a serviced office in the City you can rely on the in-house postal service and say goodbye to wasting your lunch breaking standing in line at the Post Office! Surrounded by cafes, restaurants and the pubs, the City of London is home to some of the finest food establishments in the world. From sky-high Duck & Waffle to Taylor Street Baristas, there’s something for everyone, including high profile clients.
Because the City has everything you need within a square mile, it has developed its own business ecosystem and by choosing a serviced office right in the centre, you become a part of the infrastructure, and so does your brand. The reputation of those organisations around you become indicative of what new customers, clients and staff can expect from your own brand.
