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.

The borough has 23 times higher concentrations of TV, programming and broadcasting businesses than the rest of the UK. Allied with this are the clusters of technology, media and telecoms businesses. Giving us a unique position in UK’s business landscape.

Reason #2

A thriving cultural scene

The Lyric & Bush Theatres, Lamda, Bush Hall, Riverside Studios…not forgetting the Hammersmith Apollo and an up and coming 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. We are the nearest major business centre to Heathrow, 14 tube stations and the West End and the City in easy reach. With HS2 at Old Oak Common, the borough will have even faster connections to the rest of the UK.

Reason #4

World Class Academia

Imperial 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 and Fulham as a beacon of innovation and growth, and a leading place to do business, education and research on the global stage.

Reason #5


Both Hammersmith & Fulham Council and Imperial College, the partners behind Upstream, have vision and ambition. Upstream has been created to make this vision a reality. Upstream is here to attract new businesses and entrepreneurs to the borough, work with existing organisations – connecting them and helping them grow and succeed.

Reason #6

Available and flexible space

The development of a major 23 acre campus in White City, through to Stanhope’s Mediaworks and WestWorks development and the new Scale Space, which will be ready in 2019 as well as the wealth of coworking space in the borough – Hammersmith & Fulham has the space to attract and support businesses of all sizes.
