If you’re looking for office space in London, have you considered Paddington? It’s a great location for your business.
Not only does it have some of the premier offices in the UK, but it’s also one of the capital’s best-connected regions, with convenient transport links to a busy and vibrant business district.
With a mixture of period architecture and contemporary buildings, not to mention royal Hyde Park, just a stone’s throw from the rail station, Paddington office space is highly sought after. Both large and small businesses have been drawn to the region after its extensive refurbishment over the past few years to the tune of around £5 billion.
So, just why should you choose Paddington?
Paddington has become a thriving business and residential district due to its redevelopment in the 21st century. For decades, it felt effectively cut off from the rest of London. However, thanks to a number of new bridges being built, linking the central area to the surrounding local communities, Paddington has opened up to become an excellent business hub.
Paddington Station serves both the Overground and London Underground network including the Hammersmith and City, Bakerloo, Circle and District lines. And, the new Elizabeth Line makes Paddington even more accessible. In addition, as well as a reliable bus service, there are also plenty of taxi ranks, plus the Santander Cycles bicycle scheme.
Thanks to its incredible transport links; you’re never more than 20 minutes from the City of London and six minutes from the West End!
Paddington is an important location for corporate stays and commuters. The area has a rich history and stunning architecture, with an array of luxury and classic apartments, short term lets and corporate serviced apartments.
There are also plenty of high-quality hotels and international chains for your business clients and conference personnel.
Food and drink
Since the Paddington area was redeveloped, many new cafes, restaurants and shops have opened, creating a vibrant environment for after work socialising with colleagues and friends.
There’s plenty of choice for that all important business lunch. A diverse mixture of cuisine is available such as Indian, French, Italian, Chinese and more. It has some of the best restaurants and pubs in London, which is a major achievement.
Paddington also has many of the restaurant chains found elsewhere, including Pizza Express and Nando’s. There is something to suit every taste, whether you want a quick snack, or an evening dinner to impress important business clients.
Paddington has some excellent green spaces – Hyde Park is beautiful and surprisingly peaceful, and there is a choice of enjoyable walks along the Grand Union Canal.
At the heart of Hyde Park, the Serpentine Lake has waterside cafes, panoramic paths and plenty of wildlife. It is also home to Britain’s oldest swimming club, The Lido, which is loved by locals.
Speaker’s Corner is the iconic location where revolutionaries and radicals, from George Orwell to Karl Marx, have had their say. This great idea of a public spot for free speech has been mimicked worldwide.
Is Paddington a great place for networking? You bet it is! Networking is a great way of growing and developing your professional circle.
When you share office space, London is probably the best city in the world to network. This is a modern way of working, where professional people from many different backgrounds and industries work side by side.
This provides any business with a great source of potential clients, mentors and collaborators in multiple sectors.
