Why choose to locate your business in Shoreditch?
Though Shoreditch’s original railway station was closed in 2006, Shoreditch High Street was opened in 2010 and offers Overground services to a number of central London locations including Highbury & Islington, Dalston Junction, Clapham Junction and West Croydon. 11 bus routes and two night buses serve the area, too, so it’s easy to reach both day and night – as well as only being a short walk to London Liverpool Street and the City.
In terms of commerce, the area heavily favours tech and digital industries and forms the epicentre of the ‘Tech City’ start-up cluster. Since former Prime Minister, David Cameron announced plans to accelerate business growth in the region, some of the world’s biggest digital firms have invested, including Google, Facebook, BT, EE, Amazon and many others. If your company is web-based, then there are few locations better for you than Shoreditch. It’s also worth highlighting that London Liverpool Street station offers direct access to Cambridge, probably the most tech-centred UK city apart outside of the capital.
But Shoreditch, with its gritty, urban image still attracts creatives in all forms – artists, designers and media agencies alike – with a thriving community and networking culture. Shoreditch’s cultural expansion has also made it an extremely enjoyable place in which to work: making it ideal for anyone looking to build a company that people really enjoy working for. There are a wide range of different pubs, restaurants and clubs in the region, all perfect for spending time away from the office in, as well as pop-up shops, Brick Lane and the newly regenerated Spitalfields Market to explore.
