Why West London is an important business and cultural destination...

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

London’s top five-star hotels - namely 45 Park Lane, Claridge’s, Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, The Dorchester, The Lanesborough, and The Savoy are all based in the west of London.

And of course the area is home to the iconic Ritz hotel that offers a Rolls-Royce-trained chauffeur to its guests.

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.
