If you have never considered Surbiton as a place to set up your business, you are really missing a trick. Surbiton is a friendly upmarket town set within the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. With the affluent town of Kingston on its doorstep it is the perfect place to allow your business to develop and thrive.
Surbiton is a melting pot of different cultures and nationalities. Several famous faces have chosen to make it their home including keep fit guru Joe Wicks, Jon Richardson from 8 out of 10 Cats and the IT Crowd’s Katherine Parkinson. The flamboyant Julian Clary has also made the district his home, so who knows who you may bump into when you pop out for your morning coffee. Many young people live in the town as it has a great vibe, together with being an easy commute into central London.
Set on the banks of the river Thames it is both beautiful and lively and a mere 11 miles to the centre of London affording great commuter links for yourself and your clients. It has a stunning Art Deco station (featured in the sixth Harry Potter film The Half-Blood Prince) enabling travel into Waterloo in under 20 minutes. Bus links are plentiful all adding up to an ideal place to set up your office.
Surbiton could be mistaken for being more like the Home Counties in that it has many parks and open spaces which can be of benefit to anyone working within an office. Having the opportunity to take your breaks outdoors can have great health benefits both physically and mentally, improving mood and leading to increased productivity. The very centre of London can sometime lack in this.
As Surbiton is classed as a suburb of London, the connection to the capital is a great way of increasing your credibility as a business. First impressions are important in the business world and opting for a professional address within Greater London is a definite advantage.
London is the UK’s centre of professional business, with highly skilled professionals in government, technology, legal and financial services. Having an office with easy access to all these services can only be of an additional benefit to your business.
There is a wide range of shops, restaurants, pubs and coffee shops at your disposal, making Surbiton a upbeat area with much to offer. As well as having great restaurants and coffee shops locally it is only a short distance from Kingston which has further opportunities for fine dining and bars. All these add up to great places to entertain your clients or customers.
With so many companies moving slightly out of central London in order to increase road access but still having great transport links, Surbiton has it all.
Kingston upon Thames is among the top five safest Boroughs in London according to crime statistics, making it a safe place to work.
