Sitting at the heart of London, Westminster is one of the UK’s major historical, cultural, and political hubs. It's famous around the world for landmarks like the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey.

This historic part of the capital is much more than a tourist destination, though. There's a thriving business district here with major corporations, tech startups, a creative sector, and more. Thanks to this, office space in Westminster is highly desirable for a variety of different businesses.

Westminster is home to 52,000 businesses employing 767,000 people. It’s also responsible for 5% of the UK’s gross value-added output. The average household income is also more than £50,000, way above the national average.

This makes Westminster one of Britain’s most productive and dynamic places to do business. If your clients are within the government or part of big corporations, then there’s lots of opportunity here.

Below, we explore why Westminster is a great place to do business and how you can find your ideal office space there with Regus.
