Bankside area guide
The Bankside area is one of the most popular in London, especially amongst tourists. With close proximity to Southwark and Westminster, it's an ideal location for any business looking to prosper in the city. In recent months, it has become even more appealing to businesses due to its status as a Business Improvement District under the name of Better Bankside.
The South Bank offers excellent direct links to the north of the city through the various Thames Bridges. Public transport links from the area are also very good, with Waterloo Station within easy reach offering direct tube and overground links to the rest of London. Blackfriars overground station has also been re-developed as part of the Thameslink improvements. London Bridge and Southwark stations are nearby too.
With its sheer popularity as a tourist area, Bankside is a great place to be based for both B2C companies and B2B companies that market their services at B2C firms. Of course, the range of facilities also means that Bankside is a great place in which to work, giving your business the chance to attract the very best talent.

What companies does it suit?
The Bankside area will suit almost any business. The outstanding footfall in the area means that any company relying on the public for custom will be virtually guaranteed business throughout the year.
For B2B companies, the potential for obtaining business is obviously just as substantial, especially if - as mentioned above - their business is focused on B2C clients. For pure B2B companies, meanwhile, there is just as much opportunity to explore in Southwark as well as Bankside itself.
Across the river, meanwhile, is the borough of Westminster, another extremely prosperous area that's ideal for networking. And, like Bankside itself, Westminster attracts a large amount of tourist footfall.
