Our shop occupancy rates are some of the highest in London as our high street has metamorphosed and strengthened, reflecting the change in demographics, needs and habits of South West Londoners. Wimbledon has the ability to welcome major brands whilst smaller independent shops and restaurants also thrive. It’s more than the high street, we have world class businesses and SMEs which grow and prosper here.
New bars, new shops, news places to eat, Wimbledon has brought in some fresh businesses. The town has always been a place of firsts; Office, Sticks n Sushi, Uniqlo, HMV Curzon and Polka Theatre (first children’s theatre) helping businesses test the water before they roll out. If you have a brand or business idea, do speak with us.
WORKSPACES TO HEADQUARTERS
We are innovators, market leaders (Lara Croft was created in this town). We have newer businesses that are being nurtured in shared spaces, hubs, incubators like Wimbletech. This is a town that welcomes everybody who wants to be successful!
It’s a place of established HQs with a national presence like WSM LLP, Lidl, CIPD, Capsticks, Ryman, Close Brothers, Domestic & General and Club Med. There are the unsung heroes from award winning recruitment companies (Harnham) to specialist stationery companies (Santoro) exporting around the world.
What makes Wimbledon work is its mix of businesses, this unique formula means people like it here. We regularly do a health check on the town centre and there are exciting and positive images and numbers which show an active and attractive place for people to visit and work.
Locating here means you will be able to join a number of high quality boutique hotels and the Premier Inn who are creating over 200 beds in the heart of town. We think 601 Queen’s Rd which opened in 2018 hit the nail on the head, describing themselves as ‘MORE HOME THAN HIGH STREET’ and we think that best describes the town as well.
