Basing your business here means culture, a strong arts scene and plenty of custom from the many tourists that visit this part of the Capital every year. Need more reasons to move your company to the area? Here’s our top five:
1. An area with influence
Ladbroke Grove is in The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, well known all over the world for being a luxurious area. We don’t even need to mention the famous reality TV series that takes its name from the place. This means that high-end businesses are sure to do well here, whether that be in the retail sector or food, drink and hospitality. Ladbroke Grove is also influential, as many popular high-end brands have flagship stores in the area.
2. Music, entertainment and culture
Ladbroke Grove is the main road on the annual Notting Hill Carnival route. This event draws huge crowds every year and celebrates the area’s love of music and eclectic mixes of culture. During the rest of the year, spots like The Electric Cinema, Farm Girl café and The Churchill Arms pub are all great places to enjoy live music and delicious food.
3. Books and bakes
If your business is based in the book trade, Ladbroke Grove is on the doorstep of both Notting Hill bookshop and Daunt Books. Both famous in their own right, the first featured in that famous Hugh Grant movie and Daunt Books is the place to go for books on travel – but has almost every genre available too. As for cakes, you cannot go wrong with Tregesers, perfect for a coffee with a client or potential new business.
4. Transport connections
Ladbroke Grove is the perfect location for both B2B and B2C businesses operating at the higher end of their marketplace. Because of its direct road links out of the city via West London, it is extremely well connected to the rest of the city. Ladbroke Grove tube station is within Zone 2, underground stations Notting Hill Gate and Holland Park are also nearby, giving you access to the District, Circle, Central and Hammersmith & City lines. The Overground at Kensal Green isn’t too far away either, so you’re really spoilt for choice.
5. To market, to market
Portobello Road Market is one of the most famous in London. Its traders sell everything from antiques and fashion to fruit and veg and bric-a-brac, depending on which day you choose to visit. It’s popular with tourists, but locals treasure it too for its vibrancy and opportunities for haggling. As well as drawing in clientele for your business, it’s a great place to shop and visit for yourself too.
