Why choose commercial property in Richmond
Richmond’s town centre is classified within the London Plan as a major centre, with a highly-established retail area. It’s also the UK/European headquarters of a number of global brands including eBay and Paypal and is fast becoming an influential player in the London tech industry.
Richmond has the highest concentration of technology professionals in any London borough. While Tech City remains ‘ground zero’ for London’s tech scene, there’s certainly scope for technology clusters in close proximity to the M4, M3 and M25 motorways.
The River Thames remains a major feature to the Richmond landscape. Richmond Bridge is very popular with residents and employees looking for a fashionable place to have a drink and a bite to eat following a long week at work. A thriving café culture also exists across the town which only adds to Richmond’s relaxed atmosphere.
Another real feather in the cap of Richmond is its proximity to Central London’s major transport hubs.
It’s only 19 minutes from Waterloo by mainline train while District line services run straight into the City. The M4 motorway begins just over Kew Bridge, providing swift access to the M25 and Heathrow Airport as well as the suburban areas of Surrey and Hampshire.
