Business as usual in Fulham
If you’re looking to base your business in south west London, Fulham could be the perfect place. Surrounded by a circular bend in the River Thames, there’s something distinctive about Fulham. It’s less than four miles from Charing Cross and lies on the north bank of the river. It feels like it’s in it’s own micro climate or pocket of the city. A sense of life outside the capital, yet still within its borders. The perfect spot for a growing business.
Enjoy your commute to work, whatever your chosen mode of transport. There are strong transport links via overground, underground and bus services. If you’ve been suffering in the tropical climate of the tube recently, don’t fret – Fulham is served by two of London’s coolest tube lines. With lots of stylish high streets and scenic parks, it’s also a lovely area to walk or cycle through. If you can break up your commute with a stretch of your legs, this is the part of the capital to do it. Whether window shopping, people watching or daydreaming as you go, you’ll soon arrive in Chelsea, Putney or Battersea. And there’s plenty of Boris bikes and bike shelters too. Once en route home, coordinate evenings out and holidays around your work schedule. Heathrow is only a 30 minute drive away, and the West End is a short tube ride.
Plenty of lunch spots
Wherever you like to take clients for offsite meetings, there are ample options for coinciding these with breakfast, lunch or dinner. All the reliable, mainstream chains for eat in and take away lunches are in Fulham Broadway. For cute independent cafes, venture to the nearby Parsons Green. We love ‘Hally’s’ and ‘Little H’ for Insta-worthy food and smoothies, but St Clements also comes highly recommended. There’s also a quiet, light and spacious area downstairs here – ideal for communal working over a coffee. If you like fresh, organic produce there are loads of independent stores offering just that. For swanky evening meetings or work socials, Amuse Bouche and Fulham Wine Rooms have great reputations. And if you’re after a post-work bar to quench your thirst, there are plenty of those in Fulham.
Fresh air and green spaces
Parsons Green and Bishops Park are both within walking distance. If you benefit from green space and a stroll to help recharge and refresh during your breaks, why not enjoy walks along the river to either of these locations? Dog owners and tennis enthusiasts will fit in extremely well: you can exercise the office dog and perfect your serve over lunch in any of the multiple sports facilities Fulham offers. Furthermore, the river is great for rowing and nice views for your walk home. The sight of water makes us calm and more creative, so this can only be an added bonus when choosing a workplace that’s close to the river.
Families, young professionals and businesses love it here. Young adults (25-34) actually form the largest age group living in Fulham – maybe it’s the classy cosmopolitan culture and quiet green environment that makes it such an appealing pocket of London to be based in. By establishing your business at Uncommon Fulham (based on New King’s Road), you can enjoy all of this within a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle in the city centre.
