There has never been a more exciting time to work in Hammersmith & Fulham. Here are some of the big reasons to move upstream:

Reason #1

Growing tech, biotech and creative clusters

The Innovation District at White City is growing rapidly. A dense network of research, tech and creative institutions and high-growth firms are choosing Hammersmith & Fulham – and flourishing.

Allied with this are the clusters of technology, media and telecoms businesses. Taken together, these put us in a unique position in the UK’s business landscape.

Reason #2

A thriving cultural scene

The Lyric and Bush theatres, LAMDA, Bush Hall, Riverside Studios, the Hammersmith Apollo… and not forgetting the new Shepherd’s Bush Comedy Festival – no wonder our events calendar makes the borough a year-round destination for those who love a bit of drama in their lives.

Reason #3

Exceptional transport links

Hammersmith & Fulham is incredibly well connected with its 14 tube stations. We are the nearest major business centre to Heathrow, and in easy reach of the West End and the City. And when the planned HS2 ‘super-hub’ at Old Oak Common is completed, the borough will have even faster connections to the rest of the UK.

Reason #4

World Class Academia

Imperial College London is one of the world’s leading universities, with a mission to achieve enduring excellence in research and education in science, engineering, medicine and business for the benefit of society. The College is committed to supporting Hammersmith & Fulham as a beacon of innovation and growth and a leading place for business, education and research on the global stage.


Reason #5


Both Hammersmith & Fulham Council and Imperial, the partners behind Upstream, have vision and ambition. Upstream has been created to make this vision a reality. In addition to all the great stuff we do, H&F’s Industrial Strategy Board brings together the finest minds in business, academia and government who are committed to the vision of inclusive growth as set out in H&F’s Industrial Strategy.


Reason #6

Available and flexible space

Imperial’s major 23 acre White City campus, White City Place and the redeveloped BBC Television Centre have now been joined by the new scale-up community Scale Space. All this in addition to the wealth of co-working space in the borough means that Hammersmith & Fulham has the space to attract and support businesses of all sizes.
