Choosing where to locate your office can be a tough decision, whether you’re just starting out, relocating or opening a new branch. If you’re looking for an area that’s convenient for London, but still offers a more rural outlook, then Wimbledon could be the place for you.
Investing for Business
In the past few years there has been a substantial amount of investment in the town centre area, making it more accessible for commuters. A new station forecourt has been developed, with improved lighting and signage, which makes for a more pleasant journey to work. It also creates a good first impression for visitors to your business if they can easily find their way from the station.
The area you work in is just as important as the actual office space. You want your employees to enjoy working for you and they should actually want to come into the office. Working within the town centre makes it a more enjoyable space to spend time, either on breaks or after work.
There is a great range of social activities, including museums, theatres, restaurants and a choice of open spaces. At just over two kilometres long, the Wimbledon Way is a great route for a walk to work off the stresses of the day or simply take time out to think.
Great Range of Business Support
Whether you’re a new or established business, there are times when you need some professional advice or support. If you’re looking for office space Wimbledon has a number of specialist agencies who can provide just that.
Merton Means Business is a Merton Council venture which provides advice and support for any business. This can include workshops, networking events and tailored advice sessions. Merton Chamber of Commerce also provides advice, training and mentoring for the local business community.
The Love Wimbledon Business Improvement District is a body of organisations that are working together to improve facilities in the area for businesses and residents, as well as promoting the area to outside interests.
One of the most important concerns for any business is how accessible their office space is for both employees and visitors. Wimbledon has excellent transport links, making it an easy location to work in.
Wimbledon Station offers underground trains on the District line, as well as an overground line connecting the town with central London. There’s also the tram link to both Croydon and Beckenham. For those that drive, the A3 links Wimbledon with the South Circular and M25.
If you have visitors coming from further afield, then Wimbledon is easily accessed from Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. It’s only 9 miles from Heathrow and 16 from Gatwick.
With easy accessibility to London and other areas of the country, good levels of business support and a great environment in which to work, Wimbledon is the perfect choice for your office space.
