London Area GuideOffice Space in West London to Rent

Area Overview

West London is an excellent location for companies who wish to share street space with high-end boutiques and large, classically styled houses while benefitting from cheaper rent levels than rates charged in the West End.

West London is popular with businesses that want to operate away from the hustle and bustle of central London while remaining well-connected to the beating heart of the UK Capital.

The Office Market

The main business districts in the West London office market are Hammersmith and White City, with smaller areas such as Kensington and Chelsea also attractive to occupiers.

West London has gained investor and indeed occupier interest in recent years with several new developments, improved infrastructure, and an expanding range of amenities.

Rents remain lower than neighbouring West End submarkets, and valuable opportunities can still be sought.
