Shruti Tripathi, acting Editor for London Loves Business explains why West London is best...
1. West London contributes £32.8bn to the national economy
Through its pool of small and big businesses, West London contributes a staggering £32.2 billion to the UK economy. This is equivalent to the entire economic output of Kenya in 2013. According to West London Business Association, the area has a population of 1.4 million people.
2. From BBC to Cannon, West London is the location of choice for big businesses
Be it BBC’s London HQ or British Airways’ flagship office, the west boasts the biggest British businesses you can think of - 57,500 of them to be precise.
3. The world’s finest shopping hubs
From Covent Garden to Carnaby Street to Westfield shopping centre, the west boasts the world’s most exclusive shopping paradises in the world. From the Pradas and Louis Vuittons to small independent British shops, West London is indeed Britain’s shopping mecca.
4. The world’s most luxurious hotels
5. And finally, Heathrow
Need I say more? The west of London boasts the Heathrow airport which saw 73.4 million passengers arriving and departing through its terminals. The airport’s hustle-bustle is proof of West London's identity as a vital business and cultural destination.
